Signatory Laphroaig 10yo (2000) – Islay Single Malt Scotch

Originally posted on Reddit by the_wilderness

Hi, folks! Longtime lurker finally getting around to sharing what I can. The inaugural review is for a Signatory bottling of Laphroaig. This is the product of a single refill butt cask (#4073 to be precise) holding whisky from September 18, 2000 to January 17, 2011.

It’s bottled at 46%, non-chill filtered, and has no added color, so it’s something of a fresh perspective on the regular 10yo distillery bottling. And so my notes on this end of day tipple had neat whilst relaxing on my couch at homeā€¦

I bought this bottle earlier this evening, I opened and sampled it at brother in laws birthday dinner with he and my dad. First neat, then with a few added drops of water.

5 Simple Criteria To Evaluate Whiskey (by /u/adremeaux)

Try to describe these characteristics when evaluating scotch, wine, craft beer, etc:

1. Appearance

What does it look like? Color. “Legs” (for wine, sake, mead). “Head” and lacing (for beer).

Does it look delicious sitting there in your glass? Or does it look like cheap, artificial color like JD or Cuervo? An older drink will often (not always) be darker than a newer one. Certain types of barrel finishes, such as Pedro Ximenez sherry, will darken the scotch significantly.
