Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Laphroaig 10

Laphroaig 10-  This muscular whisky demands respect and we are here to make that happen.  Roasting barley over smoldering Islay peat makes the rich and complex flavors happen and therein lies the magic.  A quiet fury erupts in your glass immediately and I suggest you savor it neat. Our chosen island single malt is bottled at 86 proof and it is shockingly smooth with notes of toasty caramel and fruit tarts.  The nose is potent and delightful on a frosty evening. Lesser malts that try to duplicate the wizardry end up smelling more like a dumpster fire…..Swirl your glass before each taste and you’ll enhance the experience.  I loved the ultra malty finish and suggest that you make sharing a dram part of your weekend.  This family offers us many options and you can spend more, but for me this one checks all the boxes.  Powerful tastes for educated palates, rated a strong 8 on the snob scale.
