As many of you know, Laphroaig is celebrating their 200th anniversary this year and they’ve released a few new whiskies to commemorate the event. The Laphroaig Cairdeas 2015 is this years’ annual release which pays homage to the past and Laphroaig 15 was revived from extinction. They’re also holding a contest – 200 Opinions Wanted. It’s free to enter the contest and you will have the chance to win some cool prizes. Here’s the official press release:
There’s a saying that goes ‘Flattery makes friends and truth makes enemies’, but when it comes to Laphroaig, we’re just as open to your truths as we are flattery. Tell us we taste ‘like the residue of a chimney sweeps broom’ or a ‘big peaty slap in the face’.
Hit us hard, we can take it. All opinions are welcome, and you may even have your opinion immortalized at the distillery on a 200 Opinions Wanted tiled wall and even win a trip for two to Islay.
That’s right, to celebrate Laphroaig’s 200th birthday, we have 200 prizes for the best 200 opinions throughout 2015. In addition, two winners will be selected to be our honorary guests on Islay this September, gaining access to the inner workings of the distillery and experience first hand how Laphroaig is made before settling into front row seats at the anniversary edition of Laphroaig Live. The contest is open until July 31st, and you may enter the Laphroaig “200 Opinions Wanted” contest online by leaving an opinion on any Laphroaig Scotch Whisky liquid at www.laphroaig.com/opinions.
So what are you waiting for? It’s easy to enter – all you need is an opinion. Just be sure to enter by July 31st and if you’re lucky you could win a trip to Islay!
