As with that timely dram after a hard day, Laphroaig comes to save us from the current political craziness with a 3.5 hour #OpinionsWelcome Filibuster from comedian Andy Daly. You can watch it below, or click here (My review is at the 16:00 mark if you want to cheat).
I know I have said it before, but this campaign is pure genius. Welcoming all opinions, good, bad and completely ridiculous. It gets people talking and sharing their views openly. It’s a true testament that the same whisky in the mouths of thousands can be compared to the ‘Nectar of the Gods’, or an ‘old burnt bandaid’. Either way, its a spirit that has was made from a craft passed down through the generations, and that should be celebrated and enjoyed. And if one doesn’t fit your accepted flavor profile, carry on and try the next one.
As a special treat, you can also see my opinion on the Warehouse No.1 wall with all the sleeping whisky, on their virtual tour. And as you can see below the video, they even added it to a bottle of Lore. Ok, that’s enough Laphroaig Fanboy stuff for today. Enjoy, Sláinte.
"Like a long, drawn out, smokey and spicy smack in the face that you never want to end". – – – – – A new blog post is up on my blog. There you'll find more on the @laphroaig #OpinionsWelcome campaign, and the 3.5 hour long filibuster from @tvsandydaly.

The glorious Islay Glow. – – – – – Had the pleasure last night of enjoying a tasting with both Simon Brooking (@simonbrooking) and John Campbell (@laphroaigjohn) here in ATL with my good friend @englishanj. Before the event I was able to present this Laphroaig Lore Lamp to John. It will be the first lamp of mine to make it to Scotland. Hopefully not the last. Couldn't have been happier to hand it over to such a great man. #laphroaig #laphroaiglore #StarWars #WhiskyLamp #upcycle
