A TRUE TASTE OF ISLAY
Laphroaig 10 is the definitive Islay peated single malt, distilled following traditions laid over the last 200 years by passionate master distillers. It’s a staple for connoisseurs and a peaty rite of passage. Its unique flavour profile is conjured from malted barley which is first cold-smoked over peat fires, like only a handful of distilleries.
The grain is then dried over those same fires and tossed on our malting floor facing out to sea. It spends the next 10 years in ex-Bourbon barrels. Because a full decade is what it takes to create our full-bodied 10 year old whisky with bold smoky flavour, notes of salty seaweed, and a lingering sweetness. Sip neat or over ice. Either way, you’ll be drawn in by its quintessential Islay charm.
