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 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.

    You know what you're getting with laphroig 10, sweet, peaty and slightly medicinal. If that's what you're into then you'll struggle to get better for the price although I think the quarter cask is comparable quality, if not slightly better and much the same price.

    Wow if you like smoky flavored whiskey, this is your best choice. It literally seemed liked a fire was flaming in my glass. Unfortunately I'm not and would not purchase this.

    I love the earthy flavors and smokey aroma from the peet. A lot of whiskeys get their flavor from the barrel. This is one of my favorites.

    A fantastic deep whisky, so much character. Better than many much higher priced drams, only the Laphroaig 10 cask strength is better ( lots better )

    I tend to buy Arbeg Ten more often since it's softer, more easy going, and slightly more balanced. That being said this scotch is unmatched when you want your Islay malt's flavor and impact cranked to 11. Only a few other laphroaig expression can top it. It's a very interesting, complex, delicious malt that two has a softer side if you give it time.

    Nothing like it was a few years ago, still nice but not near as oily and flavoursome. Shame

    A fantastic offering from Islay, bestowing a warm, peaty, smokeyness. Buy a bottle, drink it, feel the warm peatiness!!!

    A mainstay of my growing collection... has lovely smokey and slightly acidic nose. Hits you with smoke and peat and stays for a long time! A genuine pleasure to drink.

    One of the finest, a taste of the sea mixed with surprisingly reach flavor and smoke. Well goes with a good cigar. A truly remarkable addictive scotch.

    Rich, oaky and full on peat. Different in style compared to Lagavulin and Ardbeg yet slightly lacking in character. Still very drinkable though. Lovely lingering finish.

    Rich, smoky, and smooth. Don't ever drink this because you will never want to drink anything else. I love it.

    At 1st sip I found it w/an unusual influential taste, touched w/sweetness, however the lingering aftertaste of "peatiness" left on my palette was to earthy and pungent.
