Laphroaig 10 Year Old Review

Laphroaig 10 Year Old I always love being on Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire's tweet tastings and this is no exception, a cracking set of core range expressions from the brilliant Islay smoker that is Laphroaig.

One of the very first drams I had on my whisky journey and has some real special memories for me of a friend who is no longer with us. I've been a huge fan of the 10 Year Old for a long time now and even been a Friend of Laphroaig since way back in January 1998.

If you want a bottle why not pop over to The Green Welly Stop for a bottle

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Over cooked oat cakes with medicinal cigar smoke, almost menthol cigarette, underneath is a lovely sweetness of baked pear tart tatin and bitter rhubard crumble

Palate

initially pleasant undercooked doughy pastry which has been rubbed with pear juice, followed by a kick of good cigar smoke and oatcakes, touches of toffee apple in here also.

Finish

The cigar smoke and oatcakes fades to Vanilla and Pastry
