This first edition of a new, fifteen part series – The Ian Hunter Story – celebrates the legacy of one man, the last of the Johnston family – Laphroaig’s founding fathers – that owned and managed the Laphroaig distillery. Ian Hunterg was, according to Laphroaig, unique, distinctive and not for everyone. A bit like the whisky itself. Despite his polarising personality, Ian Hunter made Laphroaig what it is today: a whisky enjoyed the world over by a wide and diverse range of people. This 30 year old gem is peaty and peppery with notes of herbs, cedar, kumquat zest and gorse flower. Gorse flower!
