Laphroaig

Alcohol

Laphroaig is the name of the Islay single malt Scotch whisky made at the Laphroaig Distillery, a Scotch whisky distillery. The meaning of the toponym is unknown but a commonly suggested derivation implies the elements "lag", "breid," and "vik", implying an original Gaelic form something like "Lag Bhròdhaig" (the hollow of Broadbay). The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay"....

  • He made himself a cheese omelet. There wasn’t any real cheese in the fridge, so he used a processed slice. It tasted fine. Shortly after eight, when Banks was relaxing with Così Fan Tutte and a small Laphroaig, Sandra got back. Anxious to avoid another scene, Banks turned the volume on the stereo very low.
