Laphroaig 10 Bottling Note

Really smoky and iodine rich. This has to be one of Scotland's most characterful drams. Laphroaig are known for their medicinal malts, and the classic 10 year old is no exception.

Tasting Note by us with John Campbell at Laphroaig Distillery

Nose: This opens on big, smoky muscular peat notes. There are spices, and liquorice, as well as a big dose of salt. This whisky has become slightly sweeter in recent years, and it appears beautifully on the nose, amidst the classic iodine/sticking plasters and cool wood smoke we love.

Palate: Seaweed-led, with a hint of vanilla ice cream and more than a whiff of notes from the first aid box (TCP, plasters etc). The oak is big, and muscles its way into the fore as you hold this whisky over your tongue. An upsurge of spices develop – cardamom/black pepper/chilli.

Finish: Big and drying, as the savoury, tarry notes build up with an iodine complexity.

Overall: The only malt from Laphroaig’s range that John Campbell recommends with water; try it, it opens up the palate massively, providing a dazzling array of additional flavours…

Laphroaig 10 Year Old Reviews

Definitely not what it was!

Got a bottle of this for Xmas. On opening, could tell straight away that it has changed and in my opinion not for the better.
Decanted and left for a few weeks, it has opened up a little, and it is still a good whisky, however, nowhere near a good as used to be.
Advantage Ardbeg!

not wat it was.

This was my go to smokey whisky for a couple of years.. The last two bottles are not nearly as good as previous bottles. It is still ok, but there just seems to be less smoke.. Iodine and sugar sweetness dominate the palate. It's a shame.

Peaty , smoky , smooth. Delicious

If you want a hearty Peaty smokey taste then look no further. A joy to drink. A great one to remember and a go to for dram for toasting absent friends. Delicious to the last drop. When we meet again I hope you have one waiting for me.

Lovely stuff

Not been a big whisky fan, after getting drunk and ill on some Canadian rubbish years ago. Anyway I've always liked smokey flavours and seeing the TV adverts for Laph recently made me give it a go and I love it. The smokey/medicinal taste is a nice combination and it is is lovely and warming going down. Will be my springboard for trying other Islay malts.

Don’t buy it.

Absolutely awful. First the nose, I immediately thought of TCP.
Then the taste, definitely TCP

You’ll love it or hate it. Very smoky, iodine, oak, spice, peat and tea with a long finish. Must be taken with water or ice is acceptable as it open up after a while. Very reminiscent of lapsang souchong tea so if you like that you’ll surely love this. One of the few scotches I’ll drink. I prefer Irish though this is an exceptional drop.

More punch needed

It is a nicely flavoured, smokey, briney, peaty Islay scotch. However is lacking the punch you get with Quarter Cask or Ardbeg 10. My guess is because it is only bottled at 40% vs QC which is 48% and Ardbeg 10 which is 46%. The lower ABV makes a huge difference imo and whilst this is still good, it is not as good as others from the Island.

Not for me

The marmite of the whisky world. Hate it or love it My dad loved it, l like a good malt, but when the peaty taste comes back on you for two days after it, it becomes less than enjoyable. This one is not for me.
