Laphroaig 10 Year Old is an all-malt Scotch Whisky from the remote island of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland. Laphroaig, pronounced “La-froyg”, is a Gaelic word meaning “the beautiful hollow by the broad bay”.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. Laphroaig is best savoured neat, or with a little cool water. Roll it around on your tongue. Release the pungent, earthy aroma of blue peat smoke, the sweet nuttiness of the barley, the delicate heathery perfume of Islay’s streams. It is as unique as the island itself.
Laphroaig Lore Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged in a number of casks, combining the best of first-fill bourbon barrels, quarter casks and Oloroso Sherry hogsheads. As a result, the whisky has a rich, smoky aroma with notes of ocean spray and ash. The palate, which is filled with bitter chocolate, vanilla, salted caramel and roasted chestnuts, leads beautifully to a finish complete with malt grain, chocolate chip cookies, tropical fruit and, of course, lots of peat.
