Whisky Advocate Rating: 92 points (John Hansell)
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 Laphroaig 10 Years Single Malt Whisky 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.|
|Palate:||Full bodied, suprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness.|
