The aroma is nearly impossible to wade through...everyone at my table could smell it. And what a smell...medicinal, burning bandages and antiseptics, smoke. The taste is surprisingly sweet-ish though, and each sip leaves a comforting feeling of having a raging fireplace in one''s chest. The medicinal, first-aid kit on fire flavor lingers for hours after you''ve finished it. Not my thing at all, but I respect it. I have no doubt that for Islay fans, it''s the ticket.
As a matter of fact rather than taste, Laphroaig 10 is inarguably the reigning champ of peated whiskies - particularly since the (alleged) decline of both Lagavulin 16 and Talisker 10. Ardbeg 10 competes but falls short. In other words, Laphroaig 10 is without a doubt the best whisky in the world. People complain about colouring and filtering, but I''d be very hesitant to change anything.
It smells of an old Band-Aid tin. Not a palatable omen of things to come. Going outside of the usual tasting cliches, I''ll call the flavor... odd. It tastes like whisky, but more... odd.
I came this whisky out of curiosity about islay malts, my normal choice being speyside whiskies I.e glenlivet. All I can say is wow, this certainly packs a punch and definitely isn''t for the faint of heart. I wasn''t sure if I could even finish my first glass, but by the second I''m hooked. Although I think this whisky is one you''ll either love or hate. Very very smoky, strong salty seaweed taste and the slightest hint of vanilla. I like a couple of ice cubes in mine, the water certainly brings the best out of this beast of whisky for me. Superb
Phenomenal! It doesn''t get better than Laphroaig
One of my favourites whiskies to-date. If, like me, you enjoy your winter walks then the Laphroaig 10yo should be in your flask. The smokey medicinal notes will certainly warm you up.
One of my favourite go-to smokey whiskey''s for a few years now, one company who has maintained an acceptable standard over the years. However, as ?37 is now the price I will not be buying it, it is not the retailers fault at all I will admit. In my native France it was 24 euros not all that long ago, here in London ?25 only 4 years ago. Thank you TWE for holding the price at this level, but this is not a premium whiskey and certainly worth the ?40 retailers are currently selling it for and i will not be buying it again until I see a ?10 reduction.
Can there be anything better in life than to sit at ones fireside with my old dog Camilla a glass of Laphroaig in hand and talk to my plants. The nearest I will get to feeling like a King. Charles W.
