Smells wonderful, great after a nice meal
They say don''t start with Islay single malts. I did anyway. Then I had the more popular Glenfiddich. I found it horrible and awkwardly sweet. Laphroaig is insane. Intense, delicious, complex and inspiring.
Laphraoig is the ultimate in single malt whisky and a drink unique in the world. Some may find its richness - for a single malt - and very distinct smoky taste a shock to the palate at first. It is certainly unlike the blended Scotches that most are familiar with, but you can''t consider yourself a serious Scotch drinker without at least having tried it....!
I refuse to return to a bar that does not keep this in stock. A treat and a privilege, Laphroaig never disappoints with the bold and smoky peated flavour profile I have come to admire. From the start, this classic Islay offering is a truly masterful example of an expertly orchestrated symphony of deep, bold flavors. It hearkens to wisps of salty sea spray on bogs of iodine rich peat; gently crafted over a pronounced smoky richness which lingers on the palate long after the smooth, unapologetic finish.
My favourite of all the Malts that I have tried. The Oakley like smell, then the first taste followed by a really nice after taste.
Wow fantastic. I wish i could drink it all day long. The peaty taste is pure nectar.
For me..."nice" says it all.
Very peaty with a hint of salt. The medicinal nose combined with the sharp peat was very present. I had to add a drop of water as I thought it was a little sharp in the throat. If you are a fan of peated whiskies, this one will definitely blow your mind. However, if you drink this one daily, it might bore you eventually due to it''s strong character. But on a cold winters day, this one is great to have.
I recently tried the US/Canada version of this (North America gets Laphroaig 10 at 43% ABV, not 40% like the UK). My first Islay scotch, and I can''t say I loved it, but it was good, and I am definitely interested in trying more Islays.
A classic which has been a fixture in my collection for a long while. Complex and muscular, it opens up beautifully with a dash of water.
