I had the opportunity to try a few cask strength Laphroaigs earlier and even the single cask versions, including straight from the barrel, eg during a visit to the distillery. I have always been impressed, so I could not wait to get this new release.
And here it is. Laphroaig 10 years old Original Cask Strength Batch 005, bottled in February 2013, cask strength 57.2% ABV, unchillfiltered.

Not saying much more, lets taste it.

C: amber,

N: just extinguished fireplace, ash, smoke, peat, further emerge refreshing notes, a little sweet, delicate vanilla and rhubarb compote, tar and something like grapefruit, melon, followed by the earth, with the addition of water – everything is magnified, mineral, more smoke and peat, water opens sea and hospital side of this single malt, there is a classic Lysol, shoe or floor polish with a sweet finish, the local fishing port, drying nets, smoked mackerel,

T: explosion of flavors, begins very intense, slightly sour, then very peaty and smoky, earthy, feeling of face impact on the ground (like in the little boys years, as far as I remember it), but paradoxically positive and interesting – it does not hurt, on the way to peat there are also plums, the addition of water make that fruit notes become more pronounced, there is also a pepper and typical sea and hospital impressions, smoked fish, mackerel, also chocolate and espresso,

F: long intense with smoke and peat, even with a hint of pepper.

Score: 92

Laphroaig is one of my favourite distilleries, I really like intense peaters from Islay of Islay, also this time I am not disappointed. During the tasting I was still adding a little of water that Laphroaig tolerates it well and it is hard to drown it (of course you have to remember not to overdo). As a result, by passing through several layers, which is fascinating I came to all the excitement that can be found in the classic Laphroaig 10 years old. Great experience.
