Laphroaig 10 Years Old Cask Strength – Batch 11

£83.75

Bottle Size 70cl
Alcohol 58.6% ABV
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
Age 10 Years Old
Cask Type Ex-Bourbon
It's spent its maturation in charred oak barrels, so you can expect all those smoky maritime notes alongside nutty, oaky vanilla. The single malt is only barrier-filtered, meaning that only the small char particles in the liquid are removed. Weighing in at 58.6% ABV, this is a classic and punchy Islay whisky.

Tasting Notes Nose
great ashy notes and crystal clear malt. Perhaps a little lighter and more focused on bourbon oak A little vanilla ice cream and apple sweetness, lemon curd, then dried herbs, balanced medicinal notes and subtle coastal breeze.
Palate
more medicinal now. Liquorice and oily peat smoke. Tangy brine, making this a little sharper and leaner than the nose suggested. A light grassy bitterness. Returns on sweet citrus and a hint of vanilla towards the end, as well as a hint of mocha and tobacco leaf.
Finish
Cantaloupe melon sweetness remains alongside prominent lingering peat smoke.

Description

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.
