Laphroaig is considered one of the most strongly flavoured of all scotch whiskies, and is most frequently aged to 10 years, although the 15-(now discontinued) and 18-year-old varieties are common (the 27-, 30- and 40-year-olds however, are rare and expensive). The company describes their whisky as the most distinctive of Scotch whisky.

House Style: Medicinal.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Distillery

NOSE: At bottling strength the aroma seems quite closed giving only a rich, sweet scent but a touch of water releases all the multitude of different flavours. The initial sweet, sherry sweetness is quickly followed but the time-honoured Islay peat tang. After this opening burst of flavour there is a smooth fruit ripeness that complements the tang of salt in the background.

BODY: Rich round and full.

PALATE: The burst of peat that fills the mouth is quickly restrained by a sherry sweetness that slowly develops into spicy apple fruitiness.

FINISH: Very long and warming leaving a distinct tang of Islay.
