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.

JOSE
JOSE,
My very first peaty scotch! Tastes like taking down a strong tea made from charred wood but I grew to like the aroma and the taste of smoke.
Scott
Scott,
Super smokey, peaty, and BBQy, much more than most other scotches I've tried. Maybe a pinch too much in that direction for my taste, but still a solid scotch!
Alon
Alon,
smoky, peaty, slightly fruity, decent aftertaste, good Islay scotch - very solid.

Not my favorite but definitely appreciate this expression of whisky for its uniqueness. Aromas of thick black/forest green markers (phenols), barbecue smoke, charcoal Tastes of examination gloves, rubber, tar Warming sensation when it hits my tongue with an oily sensation. Reminds me of the bottom floor of a cruise ship where we would enter/exit

Justin,
I love this Scotch! The flavor is off the chart. The peat is so heavy that I feel like I am sitting by a campfire in a swamp.

Taste too peaty for my taste

Heavier on the phenols than the Caol Ila 12 and the Bowmore 12. Less smoke than both too. Not enough smoke for me, but adequate peat. It's a Tuesday or Wednesday dram.

The cigar whiskey. Grows on you and has a bit of a kick.

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)

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.

Smoky Peaty Strong It's just happiness in a bottle Sip it slowly and respect it

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

Heavily peated. Hot
