Laphroaig 10 YO:
The best recognized of all Islay malts and Laphroaig’s flagship expression, 10 Year Old delivers a unique measure of Islay peat smoke, tangy, salt-laden air and an echo of sweetness.
Rich and deep with distinctive smoke, peat and seaside minerality, Lore is unmistakably Laphroaig. The remarkable flavor is the result of liquid being drawn from a selection of casks including ex-bourbon barrels, first-fill sherry butts, smaller quarter casks and Laphroaig’s most precious stocks.
