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.
Nose: Classic maritime aromas, a scatter of sweet vanilla and lemon curd fading into lots of peat smoke.
Palate: Rock salt alongside a slightly tropical note bringing sweet fruit, with a dash of lemon zest, oak char and swirls of smoke.
Finish: Cantaloupe melon sweetness remains alongside prominent lingering peat smoke.
