About Laphroaig The Ian Hunter Story 'Book 4 Malt Master' 34 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

On a far stretch up north on the Scotch Whisky map lies the Laphroaig distillery, established in 1815 by two farmers, Donald, and Alexander Johnston. Their hard work on the land later became meticulous work in the distillery. Along came Ian Hunter—the last member of the Johnston family but some say the most influential one. Later on, different protective custodians were appointed to take care of the distillery. Despite their varied approaches, they all shared an intense respect for the Whisky making tradition and its elements, ranging from the Kilbride Stream, the floor malted barley, the cold-smoking kilns, the hand-cut peat, and the sophistication of oak aging. Laphroaig's esteemed expression, the 34 Years Old 2022 Ian Hunter Book 4, pays homage to none other than Ian Hunter—a man who marked the course of Laphroaig's history by introducing this yummy Scotch to America during Prohibition and was one of the first ones to use American White Oak casks. He established Laphroaig's malting floors—an addition that would make Laphroaig what it is today! This limited edition expression was matured in ex-Bourbon barrels and Oloroso Sherry casks and is the fourth installment in the Ian Hunter series, bottled at 46.2% ABV with honey and black pepper aromas, alongside peach and orange blossom flavors together with the signature Laphroaig peat and a Wood smoke finish.

About Laphroaig

Situated on the southern coast of Islay, Laphroaig (pronounced La-froyg) Distillery was founded nearly two centuries ago by Donald and Alexander Johnston. The distillery derives its name from the ancient Gaelic word "lag"(meaning hollow) and the ancient Norse word "vik"(meaning bay), which refers to its location on the shores of Loch Laphroaig.

In 1836, Donald Johnston offered his brother £350 for his interests the distillery, and ultimately became the sole proprietor of Laphroaig Distillery. For over a century, the distillery would remain in the hands of one of Johnston's descendants. In 1954, however, Ian Hunter passed away childless and bequeathed the distillery to Bessie Williamson, a secretary that had been working at the distillery for two decades. Hunter was incredibly protective of the distillery — while he slowly revealed its secrets to Williamson after she had earned his trust, Hunter prevented a cooper who was employed at the distillery from publishing his memoirs because they described the workings of the distillery in too great a detail.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
