It is always a pleasure to present what we refer to as a “Friend in Fermentation” to Meeting Expectations.

It is always a pleasure to present what we refer to as a “Friend in Fermentation” to Meeting Expectations. That is to say, a beverage alcohol that has been exalted to the realm of the “spirits”. Included in this world are the whiskies of the world as well as all other spirits. All are the results of yeasts enjoying their last meals.

The good folks at the Laphroaig agency were kind enough to forward a sample to us here at Meeting Expectations.

If you haven’t watched the video yet, I hope you find it interesting and informative. If you have watched it, and gotten this far here, thanks for visiting.

Let’s take a look at what the rest of the world thinks about Laphroaig 16-Year-Old Scotch Whisky…

From the Distillery…

The folks on the Laphroaig web site ( have announced that…


“For our 200-year anniversary, we created a limited edition 16 Year Old expression. It was incredibly well received, so we have decided to release another iteration. This remarkable dram has spent 16 years waiting patiently in ex-Bourbon barrels – giving a leather and vanilla sweetness to complement our signature rich and smoky style. Perfect for the long evenings of late summer and into cozier nights of Autumn.”

“It’s remarkable – and the perfect example of how Laphroaig mellows as it matures.”

“Available from Monday 9th September, in Europe it will be exclusively available from Amazon (while stocks last, of course). You can pre-order today by clicking on the buttons below.”

“I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
