In making Laphroaig, malted barley is driedÿover a peat fire. The smoke from this peat,ÿfound only on Islay, gives Laphroaig itsÿparticularly rich flavour. Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness. This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish. Surprising sweetness with hints of salt and layers of peatiness.
