A side by side of the tax stamped Laphroaig 10yr unblended 90 proof(as the bottle reads) vs. a 1991 cask strength Laphroaig 16yr 110.2 (Binny's bottle)
I added a splash of water to the cask strength to get it closer to 90 though I'm thinking that was a mistake!
The old school 10 is unbelievable with a more rounded balance of smoke, brine and fruit. The 16 is also very good, please don't misunderstand my thoughts. It has more smoke and less of the fruit I am enjoying in the 10. The finish on the 10 is a bit longer than the 16 and also has a toasted toffee taste which I have yet to find anywhere else!
Both very good drams but the win goes to the 10yr.
