This expression offers an uncompromising note of brine-laden peat and iodine, with charcoal and sweeter fruit notes also present. The palate is equally out there, with old-fashioned fabric Band-Aids, bladderwrack seaweed, black pepper, smoldering peat, vanilla, caramel, and sweet oak. The finish is as big as everything else, with barbecue, iodine, and asphalt. Still a classic!

Look for a distinctly peaty aroma, with hints of smoked fish, bacon and mesquite. The palate shows peat smoke from the first sip plus an undercurrent of honey, finishing with black pepper heat. Water brings out a spearmint note and a touch more vanilla.

" The original Laphroaig, distilled following traditions laid down by Ian Hunter over 75 years ago. In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour. Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness. This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish.
Sparkling gold color. Burning embers of peat in a crofter's fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas. Palate is deep, complex and smoky, yet surprises with a gentle sweetness. Finish is incredibly long and dry. " ~ Distillery notes

The best scotch!

"I'm new to the world of single malt scotches, but this is fantastic! Smooth, sweet, and smokey."

Alan

Best Value Peated Single Malt Scotch

"An acquired taste that's not for the faint of heart. Takes a bit of getting used to, as the first 1/2 bottle can be medicinal tasting to the uninitiated. Powerfully smoky, sweet, salty, and savory, all at the same time. Complex with a fantastically strong finish that's unparalleled at under $50. My absolute favorite when I can afford it. Best with a few drops of water or a single cube of ice to tone down the complexity. You can smell the smoke in the empty glass from 4 feet away a couple hours later. Fantastic Stuff !!"

"Way too smoky for me!"
