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.

    Great stuff; the smell of medicine and smoke can remain in the empty glass for days.

    Wonderful stuff. Under the big peat, brine and smoke, there's vanilla and pear. There's also some nice mineral notes in here. Highly recommended.

    Massive smoke. This is like drinking a fruity campfire. It's a very good dram, but for my money, I rate it below a good Talisker 10 or Storm, or a Lagavulin. That said, I like to drink this on a cold night in northern Michigan. It's good stuff at a nice price. Bottled at 43% in the states.

    I'm a huge fan of the Islay peated whisky's and this one in particular is fantastic. The nose is impressive on it, peat, wood, and a little hint of sea salt too it. It's an extremely smooth drink, doesn't have the boozy-bitter taste that alot of younger whisky's have. For the price its a must try, very similar in character to the Laphroaig Triple Wood.

    I fall in love with this one at the first drop. It reminds me of the burnt soybean soup I've tasted in eastern China and it has an super attractive smell, which very close to the smell of motorcycle's machine oil. Very sweet, almost a simple syrup texture. Since this dram has such an outstanding taste, so it doesn't go well with soda or ice, but pretty good with tap water. This is what I would miss if I drink too many glasses of blended or Speyside malt whisky, a tough guy's drink.

    Was introduced to Laphroaig 10 by a friend at a party. It was love at first sip. A big peaty kick in the backside followed by amazing complexity. Try a dram for starters as this is not for everyone; even the nose might scare some away. On this note is is not a dram for the clandestine drinker as when it is poured everyone in the room will know you have. Once the Laphroaigh bites you ,your hooked for life.

    My favourite whisky. Peaty, smokey, and such a treat. To people saying it's like firewater you need to mix it with room temperature tap water to upwb up the phenolic flavours and subtle tastes within it. Don't drink it neat and don't put ice in. Don't put ice in any single malt. Finally if you mix this with Coke I will hunt you down. Enjoy.

    As a first time islay drinker it was a revelation. The iodine smell trully makes a mark. An interesting dram for the adventourous ones.

    Great whiskey. Love to set it on the table and wait till the smoke drifts up to my nose. Then taste the peat and smokiness together. Have a bottle of Lore and Cask strength waiting to be opened. Also want to pick a bottle of Quarter cask. Never really liked Scotch much till I tried the Islay malts. Rich and bold. And Laphroaig a very good choice. Especially the Ten Year.

    I used to love it as a go-to peaty and smoky single malt. It was ever so distinctive, oily almost with that nose of iodine / medicine / TCP / bandages. Judging by the bottle I bought yesterday, it seems this has been really dialled down, presumably to make it more marketable to a broader audience. It was super-smoked and seemed sweeter than in the past, an almost maple syrup or caramel in the aftertaste. The smoke and peat are obvious crowd pleasers, and, although a little too much so for my taste, the sweetness too. But those trademark iodine / bandages / medicinal notes and that oiliness which so polarised whisky lovers, and for me made it such a unique dram, seemed barely there. Still enjoyable, but a shadow of its former self. Disappointing and a real shame.

    First reaction - What a fantastic nose! Enveloping the vicinity as well, and makes people take notice. Taste has very slight butteriness, smoke invades your mouth and proceeds to your nasal cavity as well, a dewy, smoky, slightly baked wood kind of a taste that lingers and lingers! Loved it! Will collect this bottle and recommend to others.

    This is quite possibly my most favourite whiksy of all time.. it's a bottle I just keep coming back to. A huge punch of smoke on the palate, earthy peat, sweetness just to balance it off and a slight nuttiness too.. such a great dram for a great price! Brilliant stuff

    Laphroaig 10 yo is still kicking and I'm little surprised. Today demand of Islay malts is so high that I thought Laphroaig would been ruined already for sake of volume. The Ten is still seriously underpowered and would benefit enormously if it would be bottled at 48 % like other distillery bottlings. Not to mention disbanding artificial colour and chill-filtering.
