Tasting Notes

"Those expecting the characteristic Laphroaig "Sweat of the Sea" flavors of the 10 Year might be a little disappointed, however those craving a delicious, mature peated whisky will not. Sweet peat smoke mingles well with dried fruits, grapefruit zest, sea salt, vanilla and dark caramel. The elegant finish goes on for miles, swirling around pipe tobacco, fruit candy, spicy pepper and bittersweet chocolate. This whisky is indeed a fine way to celebrate a landmark anniversary."
