Laphroaig Scotch Single Malt 10 Year Cask Strength

Laphroaig Scotch Single Malt 10 Year Cask Strength 750ml          
Sku: 1735094*

We mature Laphroaig in seasoned oak barrels, charred before filling to impart a slight sweet vanilla nuttiness. Original Cask Strength Laphroaig is barrier-filtered only just, to remove the small char particles present. This means you will enjoy Laphroaig exactly as we made it. In extremes of temperature and when you add water it may appear a little cloudy - this is the natural condition of a malt of such a peaty pungence and uncompromising purity. Adding a little water releases a rich aroma of peat smoke with some sweetness and strong hints of the sea.

Tasting notes
COLOUR : Rich deep gold NOSE: Very powerful, "medicine", smoke, seaweed and ozone characters overlaying a sweetness BODY: Full and strong PALATE: A massive peated burst of flavour with hints of sweetness at the end FINISH: Long and savoury

Heavily smoky and meaty on the nose yet balanced by subtle citrus aromas and a hint of apricot and candied ginger. Light bodied but with powerful flavors of peat smoke, sea brine and toasted walnut. Vanilla makes an appearance before finishing robust and smoky.
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points (Mar 2013)
Wonderful and intense aromas of peat smoke and cedar rise to your nose and are balanced by lemon zest, toffee, vanilla and coconut meat. It is incredibly bold on the palate with smoke and cedar leading the charge followed by brown sugar, honey and citrus. The peat smoke endures well into the lengthy finish as well as hints of honey.

A veritable aromatic feast of maritime notes: seaweed, iodine, pine needle, matchstick and olive brine. The palate entry is full of mint, Sherry, pork rind, bacon fat, chimney soot and rancio tastes; by midpalate flavors of cocoa, coffee, pipe tobacco, chocolate-covered orange, marzipan and vanilla extract proliferate. Luscious and stupendously good. P.P. (12/31/2007) 90-95
