Ash Wednesday

Lagavulin, since 1742, is a Gaelic word meaning the hollow where the mill is, “intense, ashy-sweet single malt with seaweed flavours and a huge woodfire finish.”

Laphroig, 1815, pronounced “La-froyg” means the beautiful hollow by the broad bay; you can “taste the salty bay in this peaty scotch, redolent of fireplace ash.”

Ardbeg, from 1815 means small headland, a “long and glorious; sea salted caramel and beach bonfire ash with woodsmoke.”
