Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength - Batch 003 Jan 11

Laphroaig 10 CS Batch 003 Bottling Note

Batch three of Laphroaig's new cask strength 10 year old. This is a stunning whisky with oodles (literally oodles) of complexity and flavour.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Hints of cold wood ash and buttered granary toast with not quite enough honey. A very evocative scent, which gives way to peaches and cream and Lapsang Souchong and allspice.

Palate: Very robust, and intensely “muscular”, this is a real brute, with all kinds of smokiness. It’s almost like crunching down on a lump of coal (but one coated in beautifully sweet toffee). Hints of motor oil and ground ginger appear. After a time there’s just a hint of cordite in the crisp air of a winter morning…

Finish: Good length, drawn out by the embers on a fire, vanilla, charred bourbon barrels and toffee apples by a fireworks display.

Overall: A powerful whisky, and one which would be well suited in a hipflask for a walk on a wintry morning…

The best Laphroaig expression.

Possibly my favourite whisky. About as good as it gets as far as I'm concerned. Everything you'd expect from a Laphroaig, only better.

Рекомендую. Евгений из Украины

Дыма нет.Торф - та. Немного добавь воды.
Сладковато-торфянистый. Классика Айлы. Аромат: торф, морские, корабельные снасти, старая бригантина, пропитанная морем.

(Translation using Google Translate: Net.Torf smoke - that. Add a little water.
Sweet, peaty. Classic Ayla. Aroma: peat, marine, rigging, old brigantine soaked sea.)

For some years I have not bought Laphroaig Cask Strength because of the addition of caramel. This bottling however is a sort of back to basics without the caramel and showcases Laphroaig at its very best in my opinion.

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength - Batch #003

Nose: Mellow. Normally a Laphroaig overpowers your senses when you stick your nose in the glass. But this version is like a soft caress in comparison. Dry grass and citrus, accompanied with a lovely whiff of the characteristic Laphroaig peatsmoke. Taste: Smooth, sweet malt. Butterscotch and vanilla. Lovely peat. Long finish, where sweet peat linger.

A true bomb

Smoke, noble wood, pitch, ash, iodine. Blazing, astringent, intensively warming wave of sour-sweety spirit on a flowery-lacquer background introduces a weighty malt note, turning then into a pitch-woody aftertaste, which's smokey trail drags on for a very long time (though not infinitely long, like Lagavulin 16). I would prefer this one over Lag: more powerful and no less complicated. Definitely want to own.
