Isle of Jura 16 year old reviewAugust 16, 2014
Laphroaig 10 year old single malt is a smoky medicinal whisky, a legendary Islay malt, which I don’t have to explain so much. Very cost efficient dram. Matured in 1st fill Bourbon casks by Maker’s Mark. Maker’s Mark barrels are air dried more than others, which takes out some of the heavy oak flavor.
Laphroaig Distillery Manager John Campbell claimed this to be the only malt in their range, that he enjoys with water. Though “only” 40% alcohol by volume, water does bring nice earthly notes.
HALLOWEEN II – strong character in healing environment
Laphroaig 10YO is pretty much like Mike Myers in Halloween II, where he went to the hospital: healing environment filled with a strong character.
