Laphroaig 10 Year Old / Cask Strength 2020 / 60.1% / 70cl
The ultimate iteration of Islay’s most famous whisky, this is a must-have for all lovers of peat. Bottled at a whopping 60.1%, this malt packs a real punch and succeeds in supercharging a whisky already famously described as a ‘peaty slap in the face’.
Founded in 1815 and built between Port Ellen and Lagavulin distillery, Laphroaig has a distinctive medicinal flavour (think TCP) caused by the high levels of phenol imparted to the barley during the peating process (phenol itself is one of the main ingredients of TCP!).
