Islay's Laphroaig is famed for its intensely peaty profile, and this single-malt Scotch delivers on that reputation. The amber spirit opens with a smoky aroma that's underpinned by vanilla and light floral notes. There's plenty of peat on the palate too, backed by olive brine, espresso and chocolate characteristics. (KN)
Pungent and medicinal in personality, with gobs of peat, tar, iodine, brine, and seaweed. These are all good things.in case you were wondering. A gentle vanilla sweetness tries to tame this savage beast, but it is no match. One of the most challenging-yet rewarding-whiskies in the entire world. What Cantillion Lambic is to beer, Laphroaig Original Cask Strength is to whisky. (JH, Winter 2004)
Peaty. You'll smell the peat immediately, but more rewards await. Honey candy beats out the expected peat on the palate, and when the smoke clears out come red fruit and hard candy flavors, especially with a splash of water. The long, honeyed finish brings bread dough. 57.8 ABV.

I absolutely love Laphroaig to begin with. I was finally able to obtain the Cask Strength. OMG! This whisky is not for the faint of heart. To call it a monster peat smoke bomb is to state the obvious. If you like the peaty, smoky Laphroaig, you will love this. It is Laphroaig 10-year old times 10. The smoke hits you immediately, and then come layer upon layer of iodine, seaweed, and a long, long finish. Try it. You will either love it or hate it. There is no inbetween.
