Laphroaig Cask Strength 10yo… My Favorite


The Purists Choice

Awarded Best Single Malt in the World in 2005 by Whisky Magazine, Original Cask Strength Laphroaig is bottled at natural distillery strength with all the depth of genuine taste and texture normally associated with sampling whisky at source.

We mature Laphroaig in seasoned oak barrels, charred before filling to impart a slight sweet vanilla nuttiness. Original Cask Strength Laphroaig is barrier-filtered only just, to remove the small char particles present. This means you will enjoy Laphroaig exactly as we made it. In extremes of temperature and when you add water it may appear a little cloudy – this is the natural condition of a malt of such a peaty pungence and uncompromising purity.

Adding a little water releases a rich aroma of peat smoke with some sweetness and strong hints of the sea.

Emphatic, full bodied and utterly unforgettable. Simply ‘The Best’.

Cask Strength picked as Best of the best all Single Malt Scotch whiskies!

Laphroaig Cask Strength has been voted “The Best of The Best” Single malt by over 100 judges in 5 countries testing malts in a “blind tasting” – all the samples were given to them without knowing which whisky they were testing.

    The Laphroaig is a beautiful malt, but my favourite is Ardbeg either the 17year old or the Uigeadail.

    The Uigeadail is my favourite Ardbeg,too!

  3. Laphroaig is a concerto of tastes unequaled by any other whisky or spirit for that matter. It is complex and balanced, comes on strong but smooth and lingers for eternity. I was pleased to learn they age in single use Makers Mark casks which are my favorite of the bourbons. Even better than the best wines Laphroaig transports you to their unique location and whispers stories of times past and the intense labor associated with impeccable quality. Laphroaig is the king of all spirits as Parmegiano Reggiano is the king of all cheeses.
