Laphroaig 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

Sometimes referred to as the most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies, Laphroaig is one of the most iconic island distilleries. With its smoky and iodine flavours, Laphroaig embodies the Islay identity.
Although the exact etymology isn’t known, Laphroaig is said to mean “broad hollow by the bay” in Gaelic. This references its location, a small basin on Islay’s southern coast. However, it officially operated under the business name of D. Johnston & Co throughout most of its history after Donald and Alexander Johnston, who in 1815 founded their distillery on the island’s south coast.
One of Scotland's most character filled Malts, Laphroaig is known for its signature Seaweed-led, pungent, earthy aroma of blue peat smoke, as well as the sweet nuttiness of the barley and the delicate heathery perfume of Islay's streams. Have it with sticky pork ribs or dark chocolate to compliment a dessert. Best enjoyed by itself or over ice, it’s perfect for a late nightcap, pouring it neat or on the rocks to bring out it’s subtle yet rich flavours. It is as unique as the island itself.

Laphroaig 10yo is a full-bodied, smoky gem, with a residual sweetness and a hint of salt amid the seaweedy, peaty characters before a long warming finish. A classic dram.

    Nose:    Huge smoke, seaweedy, "medicinal", with a hint of sweetness.

    Taste:    Surprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness.

    Finish:    Lingering, Satisfying.
