Classic Laphroaig.

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix ‘Royal’ in its name (yet), rumour has it his royal princeness Charles of Wales is a fan of the ‘L’ Whisky. The 15-year-old is reportedly the prince's favourite Scotch. For a long while there’s been frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch, especially those less-available expressions.

Laphroaig 10 Year Old is the original Laphroaig, distilled the same way today as it was when Ian Hunter invented over 75 years ago. It’s the quintessential Islay Scotch, heavily peated and very medicinal. Indeed, many-a-Scotch lover has lost its flavour virginity to it.

My first peated whisky. It has a more pronounciated nose and taste compared to my earlier single malts, but that makes it even easier to describe: smoke and peat, salt and pepper, with a hint of tart and vanilla. Somehow, this 10 year old makes me think of a late-night campfire on a stormy beach... :). Great dram! (Mine's bottled at 40% abv)

Smoky with a long smooth finish. As perfect dram, don't fear the smoke!

Nose: Campfire on the beach, heavy peat, novocaine, earth and leather, vanilla and oak if you give it time. Arrival: Peat, salt, seaweed. Finish: Intense burst of cinnamon, lingering tobacco with hints of leather.

Reminds me of Seldovia, Alaska. Cold northern sea air blowing through a small village.

Endlessly complex and enticing; each sip brings a deep reverie as the variety of notes reverberate around the palette in an entirely uncivilized manner.

Питкий. интересная вкусовая композиция, вязкая по плотности. послевкусие на небе детской медовой акварели. Вкус соленый, йодированный
