Here it is...my 2 minute review of my favorite whiskey thus far, Laphroaig 10 single malt scotch whisky from Islay. For the uninitiated, the Islay style of whisky is a love or hate kind of thing. The peat smoke brings up some really unique scents and flavors that you don't get from other types of whisk(e)y and for me it's a pure love. The smokey, barbecue and camp fire nose I get is like no other. There's no subtlety here on the palate either, it's a punch to the face...in a good way :).
As Mike so eloquently said after his first time trying this: "It's like I just took a bong rip of campfire!" haha. I lost it when he said that.
Any way, the 2 minute review audio is below but we will definitely be reviewing this more in depth on our Youtube channel.
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
