Laphroaig 10 Year Cask Strength Batch 005
Peated Single Malt
Laphroaig // Islay, Scotland
Starting in 2009, Laphroaig began releasing special cask strength batches of their ten year old whisky. Originally bottled in February of 2013, this is the fifth release. This is nearly the same whisky that you'll find in the standard 10 year old offering from Laphroaig, but is bottled at cask strength, undiluted, and non-chill-filtered.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"Fans of the standard Laphroaig 10 year who crave... more, will be pleased to find that's precisely what this cask strength bottling offers. Massive smoky peat aromas lead to a palate of fireplace, sweet cinnamon, iodine, smoked fish and meats, and fresh lemon rind. The finish is long and will please any lover of smoky whisky. The whisky is a pleasure to drink neat, but adding a bit of water opens things up and some dried fruit and nuts start to emerge. "
