laphroaig 10 year old islay single malt scotch whiskey

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskey is a full-bodied, smoky gem, with a residual sweetness and a hint of salt amidst the seaweedy, peaty characters before a long warming finish. A classic dram. The nose opens on big, smoky muscular peat notes. There are also spices, liquorice and a big dose of salt. This whisky has become slightly sweeter in recent years, and it beautifully amidst the classic iodine/sticking plasters and cool wood smoke we love. On the palate flavours of seaweed-led with a hint of vanilla ice cream and more than a whiff of notes from the First Aid box (TCP, plasters etc). The oak is big, and muscles its way into the fore as you hold this whisky over your tongue. An upsurge of spices develop with notes of cardamom, black pepper and chilli. Big and drying finish with the savoury, tarry notes building up and an iodine complexity. The only malt from Laphroaig’s range that John Campbell recommends with water; try it, it opens up the palate massively, providing a dazzling array of additional flavours…
