External Reviews for Laphroaig 10 Year
A much tamer and more elegant older sibling of the standard Laphroaig bottling. For those times when you need your peat with a little more finesse.
This is truly a love it or hate it whisky. This malt blows your palate away with flavors of motor oil, seaweed, burning wood, and creosote. What's not to love?
Medium body. On the palate, seaweedy and salty, with medicinal fragrance on the nose. Round and very dry on the finish
Color: Rich bright goldNose: Mildly smoky,toasty and pleasantly sweet, like new hayPalate: Zesty oak and warm peat smoke top notes, with sweet undertones, reminiscent of fresh nutmeg and toasted almonds. Faintly salty.Finish: Prolonged resonance, mellow and utterly distinctive
Laphroaig is matured in seasoned oak barrels, charred before filling to impart a slight sweet vanilla nuttiness. Adding a little water releases a rich aroma of peat smoke with some sweetness and strong hints of the sea.
Full golden appearance. Medium bodied. Reminiscent of salt, iodine, peat, smoke. A fragrant nose of medicinal peat and heather leads an oily feeling palate with a big kick of iodine and seaweed flavors racing through the finish. Essence of Islay, and not for the faint hearted.(tastings.com)
