Customer Rating

Laphroaig 10yo is a full-bodied, smoky gem, with a residual sweetness and a hint of salt amid the seaweedy, peaty characters before a long warming finish. A classic dram.

    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

    One of my favourites whiskies to-date. If, like me, you enjoy your winter walks then the Laphroaig 10yo should be in your flask. The smokey medicinal notes will certainly warm you up.

    One of my favourite go-to smokey whiskey''s for a few years now, one company who has maintained an acceptable standard over the years. However, as ?37 is now the price I will not be buying it, it is not the retailers fault at all I will admit. In my native France it was 24 euros not all that long ago, here in London ?25 only 4 years ago. Thank you TWE for holding the price at this level, but this is not a premium whiskey and certainly worth the ?40 retailers are currently selling it for and i will not be buying it again until I see a ?10 reduction.

    Can there be anything better in life than to sit at ones fireside with my old dog Camilla a glass of Laphroaig in hand and talk to my plants. The nearest I will get to feeling like a King. Charles W.
