Tonight 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. For Islay Info it's exciting as well because we will be transmitting Laphroaig Live from the Islay Blog, a first one!
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. These will be paired with a smörgåsbord of Elk, Reindeer and Baltic salmon – all smoked over Laphroaig infused wood. The smoky flavour is sure to blend beautifully.
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! Laphroaig Live will 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.
