By Matt Goldstein

Laphroaig, pronounced “La-froyg”, is a Gaelic word meaning “the beautiful hollow by the broad bay.”  The three main ingredients for Laproaig are barley, water and yeast.  For the Laphroaig 10 year, the malted barley is dried over a peat fire.  Laphroaig only uses peat found on the island of Islay.  The Laphroaig 10 year has a strong smoky scent with a malt nose and the color is a full gold.  The flavor is very smoky, almost mesquite with a complex finish and long aftertaste.   The 10 year is a sweet and subtle full bodied peat monster!  This is an excellent and classic 10 year single malt.    The best way to taste Laphroaig:  Take it neat or with a splash of soft water.  Roll it around on your tongue.  Release the pungent, earthy aroma of the blue peat smoke, the sweet nuttiness of the barley and the delicate, heathery perfume of Islay’s streams.
