The tasting below comes Crave Recommended for one reason above all else: If you have an interest in scotch (or whisk(e)y generally) you have probably heard that the whiskies from Islay are very distinctive. They are often described as being smoky with notes of iodine, salt and peat. All of that is true and Sigel’s Wednesday tasting will be a master class in demonstrating it.
Laphroaig is one of the prime examples of the Islay scotch type, and the drink is being accompanied by an expert from the distillery who will be available to answer your questions. Worth stopping by for.
Here is the press release:
