Laphroaig 10 y/o Islay Single Malt 40% 70cl
The original expression. Laphroaig 10 is the foundation of all our whisky created to bottle the nature of Islay. Expect a big peaty slap, hints of seaweed and a surprising sweetness.
Laphroaig 10 is the definitive Islay peated single malt, distilled following traditions laid over the last 200 years by passionate master distillers. It’s a staple for connoisseurs and a peaty rite of passage. Its unique flavour profile is conjured from malted barley which is first cold-smoked over peat fires, like only a handful of distilleries.
The grain is then dried over those same fires and tossed on our malting floor facing out to sea. It spends the next 10 years in ex-Bourbon barrels. Because a full decade is what it takes to create our full-bodied 10 year old whisky with bold smoky flavour, notes of salty seaweed, and a lingering sweetness. Sip neat or over ice. Either way, you’ll be drawn in by its quintessential Islay charm.
Nose: Peat smoke, seaweed scent and a 'medicinal' essence hit the nose with a hint of sweetness.
Finish: Long and lingering. Wait for the sweet seaweed afterglow.
