Laphroaig Live Cast Blast

Laphroaig Live Internet Broadcast Poster

On Thursday 23rd September 2010 at 8pm Spanish time, which is 7pm UK time Laphroaig is holding the fourth Laphroaig Live Internet Broadcast from the Harvey’s Sherry Bodegas in Jerez, Spain which is where they source some of their casks from. Instead of inviting us down to look good on your screens, say wise things to the camera and drink all of their whisky, they invited us to watch the event on-line from the comfort of our executive penthouses here at the Edinburgh Whisky Blog Towers. Well, that’s fine by us. Frankly, we are getting tired of five-star resorts. How much caviare can a man eat before actually starting to look like Madonna? You know what I mean? To say ‘thank you’ for not making me go all the way down to Spain and indulging in any of this malarky I even designed their official* poster promoting the event (above) free of charge. Amn’t I just too sweet?

Anyway. During the event they will be tasting Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Laphroaig Triple Wood, Laphroaig 25 Year Old and a very special Laphroaig which is exclusively matured in Oloroso Sherry Butts as well as some actual Sherry, Fino, Oloroso and Harvey’s Bristol Cream, all paired with tapas. Jazz flute lessons, belly dancing, skinny dipping in sherry butts, a dog rodeo and a knitting competition are also planned** and generally it looks like it could be a right blast. I’m definitely keeping the night of the 23rd free for this, already told my PA. I suggest you do the same.

You will be able to watch the event from the comfort of your home at I will remind you via Twitter closer to the date.
