Laphroaig Scotch 10 Years Old 750ML      
Sku: 13391

Laphroaig 10 Year Old is an all-malt Scotch Whisky from the remote island of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland. Laphroaig, pronounced "La-froyg", is a Gaelic word meaning "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay". 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. Laphroaig is best savoured neat, or with a little cool water. Roll it around on your tongue. Release the pungent, earthy aroma of blue peat smoke, the sweet nuttiness of the barley, the delicate heathery perfume of Islay's streams. It is as unique as the island itself.

Tasting notes
"Amber with gold streaks. Its aroma and flavor is fresh, powerful, and medicinal, with notes of peat smoke, band-aids, tar, rich toffee, seaweed, and brine. Thick in body, with an almost molasses-like viscosity." 92 points Whisky Advocate

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points (Mar 2015)
(Great Value)- Eye-catching honey yellow color. Aroma is of burning leaves, seaweed, cigarette ash, campfire, smoked fish. Taste mirrors bouquet but adds cooked green vegetable, wax paper. Aftertaste is extended, oily, not as smoky as the midpalate.
