For Peat’s Sake

Laphroaig – “the beautiful hollow by the broad bay” – is one of the best known distillers of peated whiskies.

We love their whisky so much, we’re devoting an entire night to it – and we’ve selected some of their most distinctive malts.

  • Original Cask Strength / Batch 005. Special edition of their standard 10yo, bottled at cask strength, and non chill-filtered. This is our benchmark; the essence of Laphroaig. Add a drop of water to magnify.
  • Quarter Cask. Less iodine than the standard 10yo.
  • Triple Wood. From ex-bourbon casks, to the (smaller, C19-style) quarter casks of American oak, before finishing in Oloroso sherry European oak.
  • An Cuan Mòr. The “big ocean” malt is matured in ex-bourbon barrels on the Atlantic coast, before being re-casked in European sherry casks. A sherried alternative to the standard Laphroaig.
  • 18 Year Old / Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Edition. From a limited run of 3,000 bottles.
  • 1998 Signatory. An independent bottling from a single, fine sherry cask.

Join us on Wednesday 5th February at 7:30pm in the back room of The Lord Nelson Inn on Trafalgar Street, close to Brighton Station. Tickets will be £18 on the night.
