Live from Islay - Laphroaig Live 2008

Last time it was live from London, this time it will be live from Islay. Last year, in November 2007 to be precise, Laphroaig staged the first live global online whisky tasting. Whisky enthusiasts from all over the world joined in and made it a hugely successful event. So successful that there will be a repeat this year, aiming to be even better than last year. Starting with the location on Islay:

Anyone with a remote interest in Laphroaig will have heard of the famous warehouse No 1, located right by the sea and easily recognisable with the huge Laphroaig lettering. Through a satellite link the tasting will be transmitted directly from the warehouse, surrounded by maturing whisky. Same as last year master blender Robert Hicks and distillery manager John Campbell will be present, this year they will be joined by Martine Nouet, also known as the Whisky Chef.

They will taste and describe a number of Laphroaig Islay single malts: The classic 10 year old, the Laphroaig Quarter Cask (my favourite for the time being), the Laphroaig Triple Wood, the Cairdeas and finally a new ‘Cairdeas 30 year old’. I hope I haven't missed anything...

Oh, the date and time? Wednesday, 18th June 2008, 20:00 hrs (8:00 pm) BST on the Laphroaig Live Whisky Tasting site. See you there!
