Laphroaig Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Islay|
Rich deep gold color. Nose is very powerful, "medicine", smoke, seaweed and ozone characters overlaying a sweetness. Body is full and strong. A massive peated burst of flavour with hints of sweetness at the end. Finish is long and savoury.
Islay's Laphroaig is famed for its intensely peaty profile, and this single-malt Scotch delivers on that reputation. The amber spirit opens with a smoky aroma that's underpinned by vanilla and light floral notes. There's plenty of peat on the palate too, backed by olive brine, espresso and chocolate characteristics. Beware: Cask strength means that an overproof alcohol level delivers strong flavor but also a hefty burn.
