Our 10 Year Old is the original Laphroaig,¬†distilled the same way today as when¬†Ian Hunter invented it more than 75¬†years ago. It is the foundation of all other¬†Laphroaig expressions.
In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried¬†over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat,¬†found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its¬†particularly rich flavour.
Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first¬†notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a¬†hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness.¬†This full-bodied variant is the foundation of¬†all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a¬†long finish.¬†
This whisky was also named 2019 Best Single Malt Scotch 10 Years & Under by Jim Murray‚Äôs Whisky Bible.
