A Quick Dram: Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength

Laphroaig 10 CS
55.7% ABV
£33.99 from Here (temporary offer!)

Colour: Light orange

Nose: Smoke from burning wood. Really earthy and floral, sharp citrus, bulk of tar and touch of bread crust. With loads of water, mint.

Palate: Cumin and black pepper without water. With – iodine, salt, oaky sweetness, peat. Just what you expect from your Laphroaig.

Finish: Develops toasty, juicy and peaty.

Overall: Superbly complex yet accessible. These days, when full, unobstructed Islay character is at premium, this whisky truly shines. Great value too if you manage to catch an offer.

Person: Muhammad Ali – delivers with grace!
