Laphroaig 10yr Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch
As Laphroaig's most powerful expression, the 10yr Cask Strength is the embodiment of a classic 10 Year Old with pronounced character and a 56.5% proof point. Peat smoke, heather and sea salt run wild.
Its vibrant tawny color reflects the full strength of this whisky, hinting at the complex notes drawn from the charred oak.
The nuanced aroma reveals whiffs of sweet cereals, fresh oak and pipe tobacco with touches of leather, nutmeg and vanilla.
Long finish with lingering spice, oak tannins, iodine and sea salt.
The Original Cask Strength is sweet and spicy with notes of vanilla, toffee and sea salt along with hints of cinnamon and pepper.
This single malt ages in charred ex-Bourbon barrels for ten years before being bottled at natural cask strength.
The only thing between you and the full, uncompromising expression of Laphroaig's most powerful cask strength whisky is the cork. Laphroaig 10yr Cask Strength is the purest way to experience the taste created by the land, sea and air of Islay. Once removed from the barrel after a decade, the spirit is barrier-filtered to remove unwanted char particles. Then, this cask strength single malt goes straight to the bottle.
The result is a bracing, full-bodied 56.5% ABV whisky delivering renowned smoke with a particular rugged character and depths of sweet and spicy flavor. A dram poured neat is lively on the nose with hints of vanilla, pipe tobacco and leather while overwhelming the palate with toffee, fudge and cinnamon. Splashing in a couple drops of water draws out additional peat smoke and notes of sea salt.
