About this deal

Hilarious to read the bad reviews complaining that it doesn’t taste as good as bourbons like JD or other piss water American rubbish.

Ages in seasoned oak barrels that were charred prior to distillation, this dram features lovely oaky notes as well as nut and vanilla and coastal hints.The distillery takes pride in its use of traditional methods, including floor malting and direct-fired stills, which contribute to the authenticity and depth of its expressions. The General Wine Company sources wines from all over the world, but with a particular focus on small, independent producers.

The use of the local peat, with its high moss content, contributes enormously to the flavour profile for which Laphroaig is so famous. They take several casks of normal ex Bourbon matured Laphroaig, that has been maturing for between 5 and 11 years, and vat them together before pouring them into Quarter casks (125 litres).

Although I was gifted a bottle of Ardbeg 10 at Christmas and that gives this a good run for it's money mind. This 19th century cocktail is believed to have been created at New York City’s Waldorf Hotel (if you want to visit tod.

The peat brings out prominent tastes of a damp forest floor, smoked kippers, liquid bonfire and a hint of iodine. Laphroaig's unwavering focus on peat and its daringly bold expressions have solidified its place as an iconic name among whisky connoisseurs who seek the ultimate Islay peated experience. Few whiskies are as synonymous with peat as Laphroaig - mention peaty whisky to someone with just a passing interest in single malt and chances are they’ll talk about Laphroaig. Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength (Batch 15) is a robust expression of Laphroaig's classic 10 Year Old, boasting a bold character and an impressive 56. A brand new addition to Laphroaig's core range, this 10 year old whisky has been finished in Oloroso sherry casks adding a layer of dark chocolate, leather and caramel onto the distillery's signature .This release, batch 15, is the perfect step up from their core bottling as the whisky here has retained all the texture and char . Nose: The nuanced aroma reveals whiffs of sweet cereals, fresh oak and pipe tobacco with touches of leather, nutmeg and vanilla. This whisky has become slightly sweeter in recent years, and it appears beautifully on the nose, amidst the classic iodine/sticking plasters and cool wood smoke we love. Personally I adore peated whisky, and Laphroaig 10 for me is the benchmark (much like Glenfiddich 12 or Glenmorangie 10 for non-peated whisky).

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and believe it to be accurate, it is not a substitute for reading the product packaging and label prior to use. Each sip of Laphroaig whisky offers an immersive experience of Islay's untamed and captivating soul. Aromas of new shoe leather, iodine, smoked trout, flowers, intense grain, soft cheese, peat-reek and dried seaweed.Its distinctive flavour profile is crafted from malted barley, initially cold-smoked over peat fires, a technique mastered by only a select few distilleries.
