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.
