Laphroaig – Single Malt Scotch
Its name comes from the Loch Laphroaig area on the south coast of the island of Islay. The distillery and the brand are owned and operated by Beam Suntory, a US subsidiary of Japan’s Suntory Holdings.
The Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston. The Johnstons who founded Laphroaig were of the Donald clan. Nice to meet you hon, we are from the Caipirinha clan.
Laphroaig is called “the most richly flavored of all Scotch whiskies”, and is more often aged for 10 years, although the 15-year variety is common. The bottles of 27, 30 and 40 years are rare and expensive. Oh, we like rare and expensive as we are rich and unique.
It has a spicy, smoky flavor. Hmm! Two shots please!! Cheers!

In the early days, whisky was distilled (mainly) by monks and its purpose was medicinal since it served to treat almost all diseases known at the time. OMG! We were so born in the wrong time.
When King Henry VIII closed the monasteries, the production of aqua vitae (“water of life” in Latin, or uisge beatha, in Gaelic) moved to the lands of the Scots, who began to use the drink as a fundamental item in the “local basic basket” (who never …?), even serving as a kind of “liquid currency” for the rural economy of the time.
To produce whisky you only need water and barley. Simple, right?
Did you know that the difference between “whisky” and “whiskey” is just the place of production? “Whiskey” is the nomenclature of alcoholic beverage, distilled from grains, usually malt, aged in barrels. When the drink is produced in the United States or Ireland, it is called “whiskey”, while when produced in Scotland, it will be “whisky.”
As the great Robert Burns once said “Freedom and whisky go together”” (Outlander 3×05 – “Freedom and Whisky”)
Made in Dublin, Ireland, Guinness is the most stout style beer in the world. We like Ireland, we like beer, but we have no idea what stout is.
Stout beer emerged in the 18th century, in England, as a way to get away from the taxes that were charged on barley malt, replacing it for beers with roasted barley.
Known worldwide for the black color and the peculiar foam which gives that velvety appearance, its aroma is more like that of roasted coffee (characteristic of the roasting process) and its taste is the perfect balance between sweet and bitter (seriously: I hate foam on beer, but the foam of the Guinness is worth it)
The secret of Guinness? Perhaps it is the fact that their cans have a nitrogen capsule that is activated when opening it, providing a true Irish pub experience, or its just the Irish goblins who have decided to give their magic touch, because that is the feeling that we get when drinking a Guinness!
We love it when we open a Guinness and this little ball makes like “fermentation” sound! No, hon, we’re not drinking too much, only on receipt days!
But, SISter, beer is fattening…! Not Guinness, hon! A Pint has only 198 calories.
Must be all the tacos then…
Bônus: Castle Lite
Castle Lite is a beer from South Africa’s largest brewery, called South African Breweries (SAB).
Created by Dutch people who arrived in South Africa in the mid-17th century, Castle Lite was the beer that Sam and Cait took in the pool at the end of Season 3 shooting.
The dance floor is waiting for me, so xoxo and see you on monday!
I will dance all night but I will only drink one glass. I’m still very hangover from #DiaDeRoland party!!
