This image has become very popular with lovers of this well-known whisky ...favourite of the Prince of Wales. The image was suggested to me when a friend of mine, Sam, who operates a classic yacht charter business on his Scillonian Pilot cutter replica ‘Ezra’, launched his boat back in 2005 and threw a party on board. He gave a speech at the beginning - very distractingly holding a bottle of Laphroaig as he spoke.
