Laphroaig 10 Years 70cl 40%vol. is a malt whisky from the Islay region with outstanding medicinal, sweet, seaweed, peat and smoked notes. One of Scotland's most characterful whiskies, self-proclaimed 'The Scotch whisky with the most powerful taste', Laphroaig 10 Years old has been distilled in the same way for 75 years with the original formula of Ian Hunter.
Laphroaig dated 1815, when the Alexander and Donald Johnston brothers of the MacIain clan of Ardnamurchan founded the distillery, in 1847 Donald Johnston, the sole owner of Laphroaig, fell into a vat of boiling whisky and died, at that time Walter Graham, owner of Lagavulin, takes the reins of the two distilleries, Laphroaig and Lagavulin, while Dugald Johnston, Donald's young son, prepares to take over the distillery.
In 1857 the distillery returned to the hands of the Johnston family, who would keep possession of the distillery until 1954.
During this period Lagavulin and Laphroaig distilleries enter a legal cause, when Laphroaig cancels a commercial agreement in which it had agreed to sell its whisky to Lagavulin for the production of blendeds, which at that time included White Horse, invented in 1890 by the owner of Lagavulin, Peter Mackie.
After breaching the contract, in retaliation, Lagavulin decides to block Laphroaig's water supply, going to trial again, the resource fails in favor of Laphroaig this time, in response, a year later, Lagavulin hires the manager of Laphroaig with the aim of recreating the stills and thus producing an exact whisky to that of the neighboring distillery. Fortunately the attempt failed and today we can enjoy both distilleries, it must be said that the relations between the distilleries today are much more cordial.
Laphroaig distillery is famous for printing on its whiskies powerful notes in aroma and taste of peat, smoked, iodized and marine.
Style: Single Malt.
Breeding: Malted barley has been dried on fire fed by peat, which gives Laphroaig 10 Years its characteristic notes. 10 years matured in first and second use American oak barrels that have contained bourbon.
Nose: Peat accompanied by light sweet, marine, algae, medicinal and smoked notes.
Mouth: Powerful body, under the layers of peat and smoked notes appear sweet and saline.
Final: Long and smoked.
One of the Scottish whiskies with more character and power, a malt for Islay veterans and the characteristics notes of their whiskeys.
