This year's Laphroaig Live event took place on the 6th of October in Sydney, Australia. The event was first held by the iconic Islay distillery in 2007 and the idea is to engage whisky fans around the world by holding a live tasting online. This year's show, the first to be held in the southern hemisphere, will incorporated Laphroaig whisky tasting, food and music.
Laphroaig is currently the third biggest selling single malt in Australia and the live broadcast was hosted by Aussie TV presenter Simon Reeve who was joined by Laphroaig Distillery Manager John Campbell, Laphroaig's Master Blender Robert Hicks and Lin Johnston, the great great great granddaughter of the distillery's founder Alexander Johnston who started Laphroaig in 1815. The whiskies to be sampled and discussed are Quarter Cask and Triple Wood, plus a special 10 year old which was bottled in the 1960s.
