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.

    I’ve been given this bottle for Christmas and I’m no conosuere in any shape or form but all I could taste was Jayes fluid so I’ve poured it down the sink . My conclusion is I’m either very common or there’s actually something wrong with that particular bottle or my relatives hate me . Has anybody got the answer to what seems like desifectant to me ??

    Christ there is south smoke. After a few few sips I can taste the seaweed and salt. Slightly sweet with a lingering finish. Probably not a beginner whisky because of the smoke, but a great whisky to drink after finding you do like smoke.

    I don't ever drink alcohol - but after sampling some Laphroaig (neat) the other day, I am going to order a shot from now on when I need to drink socially. I love smoke, and this drink is ALL smoke! - Hits smooth. - Smoke ramps up to a ridiculous level as it disperses on your palette and hits the back of your throat, tapers off smoothly into aftertaste over ~6 seconds. - Flavors as described in other reviews... definitely taste seaweed / iodine. - Minimal ethanol flavor, no aromatic ethanol burn. - All flavors blend smoothly throughout. No acidity, no nasal burn, no pucker. - Did I mention the smoke?

    Ordered this at a local bar. Thought to myself, I like a bit of peat and smoke. It was served to me and the nose was complex and rich. Smoky, yes, but promising. And then I took my sip. I hated it. Many people associate with medicine, and I could see that. The smoke was overpowering and downright cruel. After a few minutes I took a sip. A few minutes later I took another. As I got used to the whisky, the whisky got used to me. My lesson would be, you can't just jump on this whisky. You have to let it creep up on you. treat it with respect, give it time to open up, don't expect it to be anything it's not. I kept coming back to it over and over, and by the time I was done it was like an old friend. I could taste it walking down the road home 20 minutes later. Even the finish seems to change, becoming richer, that lingering smoke almost chewy. This is a fantastic whisky for it's price. It should be tried by everyone, loved by few, hated by some, but never leaving anyone undecided. Just give it a second, third and fourth chance and, who knows, it may change your mind. A poor man's Lagavulin 16, this makes a fine addition to any collection. You may find yourself coming back to it, even when you're not sure why.

    Bought this yesterday after falling in love with Ardbeg 10 on the first dram a few days ago. This is even more intense than the Ardbeg with massive Smoke, peat and a strong medicinal flavour. I only discovered Islay Whisky very recently and can't believe it's taken me this long to try it. Laphroaig 10 is absolutely not for the faint hearted or newcomers to single malt whisky but it's an absolutely wonderful dram.

    Bought this scotch before reading tasting notes so my own fault, it is so heavily smoked as to be unpleasant. If you do not like smokey scotch buy something else.

    Absolutely amazing. One of the best. I get toffee apples on the nose with iodine and pear. The taste is absolutely dreamy, like you're exhaling the seaside breeze beside a damp beach bonfire. I can't believe I left this whisky so late. I will buy this again and again.

    Wow just wow. The flavours are unbelievable Jeff. The peat plus sweetness. Glad I gave it a go. Looking forward to lighting the fire this winter and enjoying a dram or three.

    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.
