10 YO Cask Strength - Batch 13

Our most powerful expression. Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength embodies our classic 10 Year Old with pronounced character and a 57.9% proof point. Peat smoke, heather and sea salt run wild.


The only thing between you and the full, uncompromising expression of our most powerful cask strength whisky is the cork. Our Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength is the purest way to experience the taste created by the land, sea and air of Islay. Once removed from the barrel after a decade, the spirit is barrier-filtered to remove unwanted char particles. Then, it’s straight to the bottle. ​ ​

The result is a bracing, full-bodied 57.9% vol cask strength whisky delivering renowned smoke with a particular rugged character and depths of sweet and spicy flavour. A dram poured neat is lively on the nose with hints of vanilla, pipe tobacco and leather while overwhelming the palate with toffee, fudge and cinnamon. Splashing in a couple drops of water draws out additional peat smoke and notes of sea salt.
