Far from a shrinking violet, Laphroaig 10 Year is loud and proud, get used to it. They have managed to produce a whisky showcasing the sights and aromas of the island. The peat, burned to dry the malt, is abundantly clear as is the seaweed found lapping the shores just steps from the distillery. That sweet salty sea air found on Islay is woven throughout their whiskies. NOTE: This is sold at 40% abv or 43% abv depending on your market.

Tasting Notes

"Sticking your nose in a glass of this whisky instantly wakes up your senses. Your mind races trying to pick out all of the aromas and tastes you're experiencing. Peat Smoke? Check. Band-aids? Seaweed? Check. Check. While you keep searching, you'll find even more goodies such as vanilla, toffee, and pears. Novice drinkers, fear not; belly up to the bar and order yourself a dram. Life, as you know it, will never be quite the same."
