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

Brilliant

I like this more every time. Had to get used to peat, then started to like it, now this one is perfect, for me. I prefer it over Ardbeg 10(but close) over Lagavulin 16, Uigideal, and Laphroaig QC. I find the younger ones are interesting for a single drink(QC, Uigideal, etc) but 10 years seems to be right age for Islay, and Laphroaig in particular seem to have maintained their quality over the years.

Sickly Good.

An iconic Scotch for a reason. A smoky profile with a seaside buffet of citrus fruits and Christmas cake. Medicinal and peaty notes linger far and wide. The sweet delivery makes you forget the tar and creosote nuances. An epic recipe that brings me back time and time again.

A beautiful dram.

Quite simply a beautifully rich and complex whisky. There's always a bottle in the house.

Top Islay!

Recently tested against Ardbeg 10 and Lagavulin 16 and comes out top AGAIN for me. Superbly rich on nose and palate with such a delicious sweetness balancing the smoke. Ardbeg and Laga both showing the ‘Kippery-popcorn’ nose that gets in the way somewhat!

Gorgeous, a must have

Woodsmoke in a glass. But with a lightness to the taste at the beginning that you just don’t expect. The complexity builds and the finish is absolutely stunning. Keeps me coming back time and time again.

Tasty very very tasty 😉

Superb tasting single malt. You can't not enjoy this whisky. Chilled is the way.

Germoline

Very smooth but has a subtle smell and taste of Germoline

Not sure it is for us but will persist for a few evenings.

Very very distinct medical flavour. We then read its description with no surprise that it is with iodine and peat flavour.

Unique

A revelation, it's unique. A piece of art.

It came into my life at a great time as I had just quit smoking. I'm sure it will be my new friend for life.

You could drink it with water but I wouldn't.
