Contest | Come celebrate Robbie Burns Day with Laphroaig!

January 25th marks Robbie Burns’ 256th Birthday and Robbie Burns Day around the world. Known as an icon in Scotland’s history, this day is meant to celebrate the accomplishments of a great nation and the values that it stands for to this day. What better way to cheers to this iconic celebration than with an iconic Scotch? Lucky for us, my friends at Laphroaig feel the same way and have a special contest in mind just for you.

“Affectionately known as Scotland’s favourite son, Robbie Burns captured an entire culture through his poetry and lyricism.  Burns has been professed as the primary inspiration to Bob Dylan and his poetry even graces the face of British currency.”

The best way to cheers this year to Robbie Burns and the heritage of Scotland is with a dram (or two) of Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Available from coast to coast, it is my choice of Scotch for this special occasion. With it’s unique peaty and smoky flavours, it packs a punch for those Scotch lovers looking for an experience like no other. For the first time Scotch drinker, it also is a great introduction into a world of heritage and tradition.


Make sure to head out and pick up a bottle before the weekend when lineups will be long to ensure you are well prepared to celebrate.

Lucky for you, I am giving away a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask Scotch (The value of the bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask is $69.95 at the LCBO) to one lucky winner!


“On the nose the sensation is toffee and caramel, caused by the vanillas and tannins of the American oak, plus a dryness from the wood oil. The finish is long and alternates between this sweetness and smoke.”

1. Follow @Laphroaig & @DoTheDaniel on Twitter
