Laphroaig 10

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

Laphroaig 10 is matured in ex-bourbon barrels for at least ten years and has a distinct peaty flavour.

Laphroaig 10 Year Old was first released in 2004 and has since become a popular expression of the Laphroaig whisky brand. It has won numerous awards, including a Gold Medal at the International Spirits Challenge in 2010.

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…

Reviews for Laphroaig 10 Year Old
Definitely a wow factor
This is incredibly scotchy, and in the best sort of ways. The peaty-ness is divine, but is something that definitely takes getting used to for the Irish whiskey drinkers. I do remember my first sip being quite hard to swallow. But as months have gone and tastebuds have adjusted I've really come to love this bottle. Something me and my father enjoy together.

Simply amazing.
It's my favorite malt, ticks all the boxes. Peaty, Smokey, Briney, smooth. It's my go to. Even better when you get it for around the £30 mark. Although I was gifted a bottle of Ardbeg 10 at Christmas and that gives this a good run for it's money mind. But laphroaig and the whole community are just one I'm happy to be apart of. Top malt.

Proper scotch
Hilarious to read the bad reviews complaining that it doesn’t taste as good as bourbons like JD or other piss water American rubbish.
Islays are easily my favourite , this and Ardbeg 10 are two of my favourites so far. Both fantastic value for the complexity of flavour.

My kind of whisky.
Islay produces some fine peaty smoky whiskies. That's my preferred choice. Most negative reviews are based on the fact that it tastes peaty or smoky and nothing like whisky from other regions.
Well if you like peat and smoke, you'll like this.....

Rich and Complex
Very bold whiskey and noticeably different to the 'Reserve' edition. Smoke and sweetness on the nose. Interestingly, a flavour similar to tanning leather develops on the palate with interchangeable sweetness and saltyness to add to complexity. Nice finish.

Really this stuff is crap
This is a totally overrated scotch. It is actually unbelievable that people would pay this kind of money for this crappy scotch when there are so many American bourbons that would sell for half the price that are twice as good. Lol I just think people like to say, I’m drinking scotch for some inane reason

Not what it was!
This used to be delightfully "challenging", but it has become almost bland. Certainly not the product I learned to love and appreciate. Such a pity!!

The taste of South Islay
I have drunk more Laphroaig 10 over the past forty years than all the other whiskies added together. It's like being dragged down to the sea shore in a storm and having your face pushed under the water before being pulled out and left to recover by a fire whilst having your cuts dressed with TCP and sticking plaster. In a good way. If you don't like peat don't buy this. If you don't like smoke don't buy this. If you don't like the smell of the medicine cabinet don't buy this. If you are wedded to Highland whisky don't buy this. If you love Lowland whisky for God's sake don't buy this. Just leave it for us to enjoy. Slàinte! 😊

One of my all time favorites
I simply love this stuff. It's what I always thought whiskey could be, but never quite was.

Rich, bold, smoky, briney...

This whiskey is a firm handshake. It's just what I love. Nothing compares to a good Islay, and this is my favorite.

My Fav so far
I've only been through about 4 dozen single malts over 20 years but this is my favourite overall (so far). It took the crown from Lagavulin 16 over two years ago and every so often I do a taste test between Lag 16, Arbeg 10 and Lap 10 and each time I prefer the Lap. I do appreciate the others and many other single malts from other regions I have tried but for me it's the Lap 10.
