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.

    Savagely peaty, amazing full body taste. You won't be bored trying this. Every sip is a bombardment of flavours like some one set a peat bog on fire and put it out with water from the ocean.

    My first Laphroaig whisky, I was hooked at first sip. I've always been fond of single malt whiskies but this one was perfect. Imagine my surprise when I opened up my household goods shipment from England only to find that my Laphroaig 10 year old, left for the movers, had been carefully packed and cushioned and sealed and sent back to Texas shipped wrapped in a mattress. These movers just knew a good thing and how much it meant to me. This was back in 2005. I've since enjoyed the 18 year old, Quart dr Cask and to date my favorite.... the Triple Wood. Great stufb.

    what can I say, simply wonderful. A full body, lots of peaty smoke. An easy choice when you want a whiskey that wont disappoint, the Select is a little disappointing, but the 10 year old is very good

    Wasn't sure at first with the iodine flavours, but now half way through the bottle and this has quickly become my favourite dram. Prefer this to the quarter cask, and even the 18yo.

    An excellent potion made of peat, smoke, brine and earth.

    Tastes like several pieces of charred hickory were brined in low grade mouthwash. I guess if you are into that sort of taste, more power to you. Medicinal smoke flavor lingers on your palate for ... well ... hours.

    Like standing on the side of a peated embankment, the salt spray and fresh breeze caressing your face, campfires burning all refreshing. Refreshing, smoky, comforting, all in one dram. Perfect.

    Laphroaig 10 year is a great scotch at a great price. This is incredibly smoothe with a smokey taste that hangs in your mouth for hours. I've even used splashes of it to add a smokey flavored to meat. Tastes like a campfire in your mouth without the burn.

    I've been trying whiskey for years in the hope I'd develop a taste for it. Tried many, enjoyed none. Most were awful to my palate. Then I found this beauty, complete game changer. Now I understand what it's all about. This is the taste of the earth and the sea and the misty mountains all rolled into one. Perfection.

    I have to say , I prefer the not so smokey taste. But I can tell you, I wouldn't be w/o a bottle of this. I love the smell of the peat. It's a great scotch.

    This is a whisky that can be a challenge from the first whiff upon opening the bottle. If you give it a chance...and you should...you will find it fully rewarding. One of the most unique a flavorful drams of whisky you will ever taste

    Very smokey but not overwelming a very pleasant scotch.

    Don't expect to like it, but know that it may suprise you. I prefer sweeter and smoother stuff, but fully enjoy this. Give it a go and if you like it you'll agree it's worth buying a bottle!

    I can't say I'm well traveled so take this with a grain of salt, but I love it. Smokey, smooth, flavorful, delicious

    Hav recently started getting into single malts as more used to blended. Have to say, after drinking this, it would be difficult to go back to a blended whisky. This is superb, its now my favourite scotch. I think I'm in love!

    Absolutely awful. I'm used to Glenlivet and MaCallan, but this experiment was like taking a taste of pure iodine. Really grossed me out and took awhile to get the taste out of my mouth. Smelled and tasted like some industrial waste.
