My Desert Island Dram would be

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 5

It is simply delicious and I have enjoyed it since the very first sip I tried. The perfect poetry of peat with freshness of the new make still present, it does not fail to deliver every time.

I actually use this as my celebratory whisky, so when I have had a new client win or something momentous has happened I will pour myself one of these.

For me it stands for all that is amazing about Islay, Laphroaig, peated whisky and the purity associated with cask strength releases. If you ever see one on a menu… order it, you will not be disappointed!
