    Great but catches you in the throat. Water brings it to a milder 10 year. Good to start the night or end it

    I'll start by saying I don't typically do whisky reviews, but here we go. The Laphroaig 10 cask strength sits at a positively blistering 60% abv. Even the most diehard of peat heads are going to want to add water to this one to open it up. After letting it sit for 10 minutes and adding a few teaspoons of water, the best way I can describe it is a coastal fire. Sea Air/Iodine, Smoke, Peat, and Wood. The finish in particular seems to leave almost a salty aftertaste, which is not something I've experienced before from a whisky. Overall, this is an excellent representation of Islay style whiskys. It's certainly not going to be for everyone, but for those who like peat and smoke I would encourage you to give it a try. Its very intense, but extremely complex and smokey, and can hold it's own against other greats like the Lagavulin 16.

    Batch 11: 58.6% - Remnants of a Bonfire on a beach. Heard this was the 10 turned up to 11. Didn’t disappoint. Sea salt, brine. Smoke ash. Wood. In that order. Laphroaig 10 was the first scotch I really fell for. I still go back and sip it from time to time but I find the low abv leaves something to be desired. This remedies that and then some.

    This is one of those classic low-tide smelling drams. It smells like a bog, pure and simple. The peat is strong but the burn is very subtle for the proof. There is a medicinal ointment-like sweetness with an oaky backbone. This is an amped-up version of the classic Laphroaig expression.
