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 dram – a benchmark in peat.

    Without doubt the standard for an Islay single malt. Its first impression is medicinal, it does not hold back like some islay malts, but if you persist the complexities of its flavour come through.

    Absolutely original. If you like something different, this has flavor and character.

    If you like smoke, you'll like this. Tastes like licking a campfire, in a good way.

    This whisky is confusing to me. While one part of me hates the taste of burning rubber, the other half of me is drawn by the campfire smoke taste. Still I find myself pouring more just to experience it and to be honest I will be buying more.

    This is a very special whisky. Ardbeg or Lagavulin usually find their way into my daily glass, but every now and then I get a wild hair for Laphroaig. Every sip is a journey, an experience – something to be savored. I find just a few drops of water really help balance the flavours. The smoke is very intense, maybe the most of any readily available bottle, as is the peat, but the few drops of water work well to bring through all of the other sweet flavors that normally get overpowered by this malt's aggressiveness. There is so much more to this than just smoke and peat.

    Magnificent smoky flavour. One of the best – 10 star rating from me.

    This quality and taste on that price makes it some of the best value-for-money choices. Definitely worth tasting if you are into Islays.

    I was dining one evening and on arrival I ordered a Lagavulin. The restaurant didn't carry it. After a few suggestions that fell very short, I had almost resolved to enjoy a Stella. Just then an attractive woman, alone at the bar, suggested Laphroaig (how noir, right? I couldnt resist) so I gave the nod. There are moments that take place as you go through life that define us as who we are and when you look back you see your life as "before this happened and after this happened". This was one of those moments.

    Literally the worst whiskey I've ever tasted. Couldn't even finish the glass. Had to throw the whole thing out.

    I have been expanding my scotch collection and have recently added the Laphroiag 10 to my Islay corner. I LOVE THIS SCOTCH. It will become my go-to drink in the evening if Scotch is on my palate... and it usually is. There is no guessing with this beauty. You know exactly what you have and I love a smokey, peaty Scotch that isn't too sweet. There are a few other Laphroaigs I want to try, but for the price I expect to keep this on and off the shelf constantly. Well done!

    Love it. People may want to shoot me here for mixing it, but Laphroaig 10 and club soda is pure magic. Summertime!

    I've only had Johnny Walker scotch before this (black label and blue label ) and this tastes like rot gut moonshine distilled through and old car radiator by comparison.

    Wth is wrong with you people? Tastes like rubbing alcohol and bandaids. Foulest thing I've ever tasted.

    I bought this for my husband for Christmas and he doesn’t like it. He couldn’t even finish his glass

    Huge peat presence balanced by a touch of sweetness. Really opens up and becomes more smooth with a few drops of water. Classic Islay style - great bottle.

    Classic Islay single malt. If you want to taste an excellent peaty whisky for a good price, this is your bottle.
