Laphroaig 10 Year Old

A thick coating of peat isn’t enough to cover a soft, oaky background on the nose. Continuous gentle waves of dry peat lap upon the taste buds but are balanced by a sweet malt middle and the most hesitant of vanillas. With a long and peaty finish , the shy vanilla now begins to show as the oak adds a certain dryness. A gentle giant.

The original Laphroaig, distilled the same way today as when Ian Hunter invented it over 75 years ago.

In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour.

Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness. This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish.

 

COLOUR: Full sparkling gold

NOSE: Huge smoke, seaweedy, “medicinal”, with a hint of sweetness

BODY: Full bodied

PALATE: Surprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness

FINISH: Lingering
