Laphroaig 10 Year Cask Strength #Whisky


Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength:  Not the first drink of he night.  Frankly, not the second drink of the night.  Such is life.  Light honey color. Signature Laphroaig peat-and-sweet nose with a dusty heat in the background.  Someone might have stashed an orange peel way back there somewhere.  Decent viscousness in the mid builds upon a light beginning… which quickly degenerates into a respectable showing of heat and syrup-balanced peat. Rose and gummy peat linger.  And by gummy I mean on-the-gums.   A purposeful Islay whisky that (I think) Laphroaig should put as one of its best distillery-foots forward.
