Country: Scotland | Region: Isle of Islay | Volume: 70cl | ABV: 40%
Laphroaig – pronounced La-froyg – is one of the most divisive Scotch whiskies, loved by those who enjoy its medicinal, smoky flavour and looked on in amazement by those who don't, it remains one of the most popular. Laphroaig distillery sits on the south coast of Islay, the first of the three Kildalton distilleries. Part of the triumvirate of heavily-peated southern Islay malts.
Classic, medicinal peat notes up front, supported by citrus-y, chocolate-y sweet notes and soft barley. The peat is there, but it's taking it easy and letting the bright notes of lemon, green apples and mint stand out. Darker baking spice notes develop further on. Medium length, peat remaining in sight until it's over.
