Absolutely no better scotch whiskey, period!
Fantastic medicine. This whisky is definitely one of my top favorites. Unique, powerful and storytelling. The smell and taste of the ocean is extremely persistent in this one. So much character. Godly.
Outstanding.The real celtic stuff.
Of all the Islay malts, I find this one to reign victor of the crown. Deep blue peat smoke enriched by medicinal oak, vanilla, and the lightness of fresh sea air. Its simple humility will grow on you fondly with a coinage that King Charles would extol.

The aroma is nearly impossible to wade through...everyone at my table could smell it. And what a smell...medicinal, burning bandages and antiseptics, smoke. The taste is surprisingly sweet-ish though, and each sip leaves a comforting feeling of having a raging fireplace in one''s chest. The medicinal, first-aid kit on fire flavor lingers for hours after you''ve finished it. Not my thing at all, but I respect it. I have no doubt that for Islay fans, it''s the ticket.
As a matter of fact rather than taste, Laphroaig 10 is inarguably the reigning champ of peated whiskies - particularly since the (alleged) decline of both Lagavulin 16 and Talisker 10. Ardbeg 10 competes but falls short. In other words, Laphroaig 10 is without a doubt the best whisky in the world. People complain about colouring and filtering, but I''d be very hesitant to change anything.
It smells of an old Band-Aid tin. Not a palatable omen of things to come. Going outside of the usual tasting cliches, I''ll call the flavor... odd. It tastes like whisky, but more... odd.
I came this whisky out of curiosity about islay malts, my normal choice being speyside whiskies I.e glenlivet. All I can say is wow, this certainly packs a punch and definitely isn''t for the faint of heart. I wasn''t sure if I could even finish my first glass, but by the second I''m hooked. Although I think this whisky is one you''ll either love or hate. Very very smoky, strong salty seaweed taste and the slightest hint of vanilla. I like a couple of ice cubes in mine, the water certainly brings the best out of this beast of whisky for me. Superb
Phenomenal! It doesn''t get better than Laphroaig
