I’ve been here twice already, and Laphroaig is always pleased me with happiness and satisfaction. Had some wee taste of old Laphroaig which were fantastic! Special mention about my previous tour guide David who works for Laphroaig for over 40 years as a tour guide!...More

Honestly, Laphroaig is one of the few whiskies I really cannot drink. However, this has no bearing on the experience I had when visiting and the whole thing was excellent. David, our guide, was absolutely magnificent. Nothing beats experience and it really was a pleasure...More

The staff is amazingly friendly. We missed the tour because wet walked in the rain and it took longer than expected. The whiskey was vey good. Less Smokey than others. If you're from USA you'll probably relate it more to our whiskeys.

Visiting the Laphroaig distillery is like a pilgrimage for some, for others it is simply a day out. Whatever your motivation I would recommend a visit here at some point while you are on Islay.

Flybe is the plane company that services Islay. It really depends on the flight times available. You'll probably have to arrive one day and leave the next.
