Laphroaig 10 Year Cask Strength

20160726_220054_wmI have not tasted many Scotches, but figured since today is National Scotch Day I should write about one.
Bottled at 112.6 Proof by Laphroaig Distillery on Port Ellen, Isle of Islay
I Paid $65 for it at my local store, but have seen it as high as $90 around MA.  Most stores will carry the Regular 10 year, but the cask strength I’ve only seen at a handful of stores.

Nose:  Your first sniff you get a definitive sweet medicine smell, ocean seawater/seaweed and smokiness

Taste:  Smooth, Peat hits you upfront then a subtle taste of salt, sweetness of berries and vanilla

Finish: Really nice and full, some oak with the smokiness of a campfire/BBQ leaves you wanting more!

Value:  At $65 for cask a strength scotch it’s worth it!  Especially if you enjoy full flavor of peat/smokiness.
