Laphroaig 10 Year Old is an all-malt Scotch Whisky from the remote island of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland. Laphroaig, pronounced "La-froyg", is a Gaelic word meaning "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay".
Laphroaig is elaborated using malted barley dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly flavour.
Laphroaig is best savoured neat, or with a little cool water.
To taste Malt Whisky add a few drops of water to help awaken the bouquet of the malt and bring out the aromatics.
Full sparkling gold colour.
Nose: smoke, seaweedy, "medicinal", with a hint of sweetness
Palate: suprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness. Lingering finish.
