The essence of Islay, bottled. One of the classic malts of the tiny island, Laphroaig 10-year is chock full of smoke, ashy peat, iodine, and brine. It opens to a beautifully complex whisky with notes of cocoa, salt-water taffy, peanut butter cups and a touch of seaweed. The combination of sweet and salty takes center stage in this whisky. Touches of oak and fruit really balance out the flavors. If you're seeking the intensity of Islay whisky without breaking the bank, this is the go-to whisky for you.
