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 Laphroaig 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.
Nose: Huge smoke, seaweedy, "medicinal", with a hint of sweetness.
Palate: Surprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness.
