Laphroaig 10yo #011

Here we have Laphraoig's wonderful batch-released cask strength 10 Year Old! It's spent its maturation in charred oak barrels, so you can expect all those smoky maritime notes alongside nutty, oaky vanilla. The single malt is only barrier-filtered, meaning that only the small char particles in the liquid are removed. Weighing in at 58.6% ABV, this is a classic and punchy Islay whisky.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Reviews for Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength - Batch 011
Incredible Dram
Nose - Smells like damp earth and grains, a burning campfire, sweet oak, and cured pork.

Palate - Sweet honey coated wood, see salt, black peppers, lemonade, dried tobacco leaves and vegetation.

Finish - Smoked brisket, sea salt, iodine, milk chocolate and bread. Very long finish.

Incredibly smooth in the mouth considering the high ABV. Very memorable dram which truly captures the "spirit" of the Distillery.

Punches way above its weight, an absolute beast.
An absolute beast of a whisky. I mean the 10 is good but this packs a serious punch. One of those whiskies where you pour a dram and nurse it for an hour or more, just savouring the many layers of complexity and goodness.

Far too strong to 'enjoy' neat as the kick of the alcohol just hits the back of your throat, but a little water tames the beast to one of the most enjoyable drams I've had. Love the Islay malts and a fine one to add to the collection. Thanks Laphroig!

As expected and brilliant
A tiny splash sorts out Classic Laddie straight away! Needs same amount of water drunk solo.

As good as ever
This is a BIG whisky and requires experimentation with water - without, it's just too numbing and so much is missed. Of course, there's peat smoke and sea spray but there's also a sweet fruitiness and vanilla and the finish just goes on and on ......
Not to everyone's taste, as is the norm with Laphroaig, but Islay lovers will savour this one.

A biiiiig whisky! Quintessential Laphroaig...and great fun.
Well, I'm most surprised by the tasting notes below stating that this big boned, muscular, quintessential ( IMO ) Laphroaig is "swamped in sherry!" I once bought a Uigeadal that I believe was an untypical "bad batch" and THAT was indeed "swamped in sherry." Tasted like old wellington boots! This batch 11 is grand, And having had a couple of wonderful, well put together Islays that worked perfectly "heavily sherried" , such as a special Bunnahabhain, and both a Bowmore and a Laddie straight from the cask - all f which were deliciously dark in colour and flavour I couldn't agree less!! Untypically, having not had a dram for a wee while when I opened this, I began by diluting it by about a third. It worked perfectly, and at this high ABV it takes water well. and rather reminded me of the "Select" but with more going on. Which proves its DNA. Great Fun. And highly recommended.

Laphroaig does it again!
A powerfully rich scotch. Even better than #9! I’m gonna get at least 2 more. 👍🏼🥃

Islay swamped in dark, syrupy sweet sherry
Having read an array of Batch 011 tasting notes that spoke of cantaloupe melon, stone fruits, tropical fruits, lemon zest etc, and other notes that stated Batch 011 was aged and matured in Bourbon barrels , the reality came as a total surprise. This is Islay swamped in Sherry. Yes, there’s plenty of tarry rope, peat smoke and ash, but those ‘traditional Islay’ elements are overwhelmed by way too much dark, syrupy sweet Sherry. Batch 011 would be very comforting on a dark winter’s night in front of a cosy fire, and I’m not sorry I bought it, but it’s totally not what the tasting notes, here and elsewhere, suggest.
