Laphroaig’s small batch 10 year old has proven wildly more successful than even the Islay distillery themselves anticipated, and Batch 11 is sure to delight the many fans further still. This is a bold and potent malt, a 58.6% cask strength powerhouse that is not for the faint of heart
In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour.
Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness. This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish.
