On Wednesday 24th September Laphroaig Live will broadcast live from Sweden. This year’s show will be streamed live from the tiny island of Fjäderholmarna, just outside Stockholm.

Previous shows have brought you the flavours of Spain, Germany, America and even Australia but this year will be uniquely Scandinavian in flavour – mainly due to the show’s location, a famous smokery restaurant called Rökeriet.

Laphroaig Live 2014 comes to Stockholm - September 24th at 7pm BST

During the show a panel of whisky experts will be tasting four Laphroaig expressions. A unique 12 Year Old Triple Cask Nordic special, this year’s much acclaimed Cairdeas finished in Amontillado casks and the latest Global expression called Select and a fourth that will be decided by a Friends of Laphroaig online vote.

The whiskies will be paired with a smörgåsbord of Elk, Reindeer and Baltic salmon – all smoked over Laphroaig infused wood.

An expert panel of guests will explore the strong connections between smoke and depth of flavour. Distillery Manager, John Campbell. Will be accompanied by a panel consisting of famous Swedish personalities; Nour el Refai - Actress and Comedian, Peter Borg - Chairman Whisky Club HABOST and Håkan Dahlberg a prolific Swedish whisky blogger at I Love Whisky.

Last year’s Swedish Bartender of the Year Madeleine Solo Rapp will be making a guest appearance and creating something special using Laphroaig.

You can watch the broadcast live via www.laphroaig.com on Sept 24th at 7pm BST.
