This whisky is truly superb! I would like to give 5 stars for the really excellent whisky! Laphroaig is really delivering top quality.
I waited a long time for such an expression. A very puristic Laphroaig. For a single moment a bit sweet but then the smoky notes take over. Laphroaig…the way I like.
Nose: Sweet and pronounced peat – as it should be! Sea salt, white pepper, milk chocolate, dark honey, almonds and cinnamon. I do detect some faint sherry notes here as well.
Taste: Peaty, medicinal, creamy and rich! Ginger, oranges, white pepper and a lovely tingling sensation. A big pile of wet driftwood burning on a surf-tormented shore, as the storm clouds gather. The mouthfeel is oily and creamy. Love it!
Finish A bit drier on the finish, but at the same time mouthwatering – one of those lovely whisky conundrums. Ginger, caramel and creamy chocolate all the way home.
Balance Old love does not rust, and Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength does not disappoint – ever. ’nuff said!
