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 aromaand 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 92 points (Apr 2014)
Powerful smoky aromas give way to more delicate hints of breakfast cereal, fresh mown grass and peach. Delicately sweet, yet robust with oat flavors abutting mango and banana. A composed and sweet-smoky finish ensues.
