Laphroaig 10 Year Old is the original Laphroaig, distilled the same way today as when Ian Hunter invented it more than 75 years ago. The smoke from the peat used to dry the malt, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour.
Full bodied. Surprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness. Huge smoke, seaweedy, "medicinal", with a hint of sweetness and a lingering finish.
