Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength Reviews

Absolutely terrific. I'm on batch 8 (at 59.9% ABV) and it has been a progression of perfection to perfection. I hope Laphroaig continue putting out the cask strength version of their gem. Pleated single malt whisky is optimal at 10 yrs of age, I find, and this is the essence of Laphroaig, even more so than Lore (which is excellent in its own right, as it is complex).
Wow. This is a whisky that pulls no punches. Can be a bit overwhelming so water is probably necessary for that reason. Loads of smoke, salt, and medicinal notes. I have attended bonfires on the beach in Hawaii on several occasions and can attest to the similarities. We start the fire when the tide is low, then later in the night when the tide comes up, the fire and the sea meet, the resulting smoke from the dying fire smells like this tastes.
The label recommends you add twice as much water as you have whisky! Sounds a bit extreme to me. But once it's had a chance to breathe, and you've added 50% water it's truly fabulous.
I was happy that this was available again. It needs some water to properly open up but there you'll have it then: a 10yo dram with a lasting, satisfying and above all rich aftertaste. Price/qualitywise best Laphroaig (used to think it was the 18 before I met CS).
Best cask strength frm Laphroaig! Monster dram......
The best Laphroaig expression.
I like it!
simply superb - smoky, sweet, lush.
Complex, smoky and more intoxicating nose than the 10, you can smell its a cask. Pleasant medium sweet taste, stronger and sharper than the 10. The finish is also longer with some pepper coming through at the end and of course lots of rich smoke. For me this is superior to the Quarter Cask and different enough to the 10 to be worthy of its cask credentials!
