Laphroaig 10-year-old, Islay, Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 40%

Laphroaig 10-year-old, Islay, Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 40%
Many would testify to Laphroaig's reputation as the most distinctive Islay malt, due to its unashamedly peaty, medicinal and oily style. The distillery is washed by the salt laden sea winds and seaweed is often hurled at the warehouse walls where the casks are breathing.Laphroaig Distillery, Islay

Laphroaig 10-year-old, Islay, Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 40%
Laphroaig was my father's favorite. He loved its bold peatiness with a dash of spring water. I have discovered that it is also a wonderful match for chocolate with a little sea salt. 
Sarah Jane Evans - BBC Good Food Magazine, December 2012. 

Nose
Phenolic, seaweedy, with a hint of estery, melony, sweetness.
Palate
Seaweedy, salty, oily.
Finish
Round, dry, iodine-like.
Comment
The most medicinal of Islay malts. I love it.

Michael Jackson - Whisky Magazine Issue 6

Nose
A thick coating of peat isn't enough to cover a soft, oaky background. Iodine appears alongside a pear-fruity sweetness. Delicate for a whisky so big.
Palate
Continuous gentle waves of dry peat lap upon the tastebuds but are balanced by a sweet malt middle and the most hesitant of vanillas.
Finish
Long and peaty, the shy vanilla now begins to show as the oak adds a certain dryness.
Comment
A gentle giant.
