Every year, I'm really looking forward to the 10 CS from Laphroaig. This very powerful malt is a highlight for me every year. I hope Laphroaig will treat us to this whisky in the next few years in this quality. The price is reasonable.
Without water: at first rather restrained, it opens after a while.
With a few drops of water, the malt opens faster.
Sweet, bread dough, yellow and red fruits, some gum mixed occasionally. Smoke, salt, sea
What the nose hears continues in the taste.
The whisky is initially reserved in the mouth, very sweet. Then it comes powerful, tingling on the tongue, fills the entire mouth with its viscosity. Salt, pepper, you notice the oak which never gets unpleasant.
Very long finish, it comes again and again the different tastes one after another alternately. A powerful malt!
