When it comes to industry news and events, I usually do not publish them on the blog unless it’s accompanied with new whisky release, which frankly, is the kind of news that interest me (and you too I hope).
Laphroaig is my favorite distillery and in the Laphroaig Live 2014 they will introduce A unique 12 year old triple casked Nordic special bottling so I guess it does fall under the news I should provide you.
However, today is eve of new Jewish year which means I’ll be sitting with the family to a feast and so won’t be able to watch the event. But you can can my substitute so go ahead and watch it live at Laphroaiglive.tv. Slainte!
Here is what you need to know:

On Wednesday 24th September at 8pm local time ( 7pm UK,) the eighth annual Laphroaig Live will broadcast live from Sweden.
This year’s show will be streamed live from a tiny island called Fjäderholmarna which is part of the archipelago just outside Stockholm.
During the show a panel of whisky experts will be tasting 4 phenomenal Laphroaigs:
A unique 12 year old triple casked Nordic special, this year’s much acclaimed Cairdeas finished in Amontillado casks, the latest Global expression called Select and a fourth that will be decided by a Friends of Laphroaig online vote.
An expert panel of guests will explore the strong connections between smoke and depth of flavour in what is sure to be a smoke fest!
As always, we’ll be joined by Distillery Manager, John Campbell. This year he’ll be accompanied by a panel consisting of these famous Swedish personalities; Nour el Refai a comedian, TV personality, host and a well-known Swedish radio presenter, Peter Borg chairman of the Swedish Whisky Association and Håkan Dahlberg a prolific Swedish whisky blogger of I Love Whisky.
And last year’s Swedish Bartender of the Year Madeleine Solo Rapp will be making a guest appearance and creating something special using Laphroaig.
