Laphroaig 10 year old is so legendary and cost efficient that I don't have to go on about it. Master of Malts: "The only malt from Laphroaig’s range that John Campbell recommends with water: try it, it opens up the palate massively, providing a dazzling array of additional flavors". I tried and I agree!

Laphroaig 10 is like Mike Myers going to the hospital in Halloween II. Strong character in a healing environment.

Nose: Great and rich. Smoky peat with iodine. One of the best aromas out there.

Taste: Very oaky and peaty dram with spices. Medicinal malt with hints of vanilla.

Finish: Strong but not too rough. Smoke and tar with iodine. Dry and complex.

Balance: Strong and "healing" all the way.

I think I may be the only one I know who much prefers Laphroaig 10 without water! Perhaps my palate just isn't that refined but I don't think water does this whisky any favors. To me, it actually washes it out a bit. Am I crazy!?

Actually I do still like it more without water but the added water did open up it's additional flavors.

Its so nice to come back to after tasting all kinds of other malts. Would be a lot more 'waterable' if it was bottled at 43-46%, but for €27 you cant go wrong if you need your medicine :p
