Laphroaig 10 Year Old

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Laphroaig 10 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

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

Powerful smokey scotch

Drops one star rating as I do prefer the less medicinal flavours of Ardbeg and Lagavulin, but gets half back for value (quite a bit cheaper than Ardbeg 10 here in Western Canada). But definately a must-have or at least must-try for those that enjoy peated scotch.

My first choice for sitting round the campfire with friends.

It's everything that everyone says it is. It's a flavour bomb slap in the face, and it amazes me that it's become ubiquitous and obtainable everywhere, though I'm grateful too, as it means I can always get some, and reasonably priced too!

5 stars ignore the hate

First drank this stuff circa 1996...loved it. It started my whisky love affair really. Then it was lagavulin , Bhunnahabin....since then I have been lucky to start a fair collection myself... I have drunk some rather special stuff...this remains a favorite ....And there are some whisky snobs who are a bit snooty about the 10...I still love it. I even like the fact that its bottled at 43percent..means I can have 2 on a Sunday night and function...and if there is colour added its not exactly obvious. always in my cupboard.

I was surprised, actually.

I bought this one today and I wasn't sure I was buying the right product, Horst L wasn't too impressed with it.. ralfy gave this 91 and 84 in his reviews though (there are two reviews of this type on his channel).

Laphroig state on the bottle that they are the most richly flavoured of all scotch whiskies, I thought it was a bullshit but at the moment I am looking for maturity and less alcohol bite. But I decided to give this one a chance,

To be honest, it has probably the best 10 year old whisky you can get.. it is quite rich for a 10 yr old. That tells us, that they are good casks and they take care of each factor in their process. But because it's a 10 year old, it's less 'smooth' than the matured ones. But they were right, it's a good one. And to be noticed, the smoke is not covering everything, I don't know the excactly ppm number but it's well balanced. Trust me.

I gotta give this 4.5 stars.

The best whisky

Nothing I've tried comes close

Fabulous.

Fabulous, distinct, divine ...drink this late on a Sunday evening and lapse into heavenliness. This is beyond earthly tastes. Incredible.

Medicinal goodness.

Pound for pound, probably one of the best whiskys you can buy. Not too expensive (occasionally £28 on offer) and unreal flavours. Hits all the notes for me.. Sweet, smokey, peaty and woody. Astonishingly easy to drink.

Damn it! This may have just become my new favourite.

I find when my whisky bottle has a few glasses left I enjoy browsing the web and researching whisky's ... and then end up buying yet another bottle of Talisker 10; simply because I love it so much!

Now my birthday has rolled around and I've been bought a Talisker 10, so treated myself to a Laphroaig 10 and sat down with them side-by-side.

I am literally in love with this Laphroiag 10. It's actually far more complex in its flavours than I expected and just so damn easy to drink.

My one criticism would be that I wouldn't mind it being slightly stronger in strength. It goes down far too easily and I can see this bottle being drained too quickly.

An absolutely gorgeous whisky if you enjoy peaty mouthfuls of campfire smoke and for me personally a wonderful, almost vanilla undertone.

I will definitely be grabbing another one of these bottles ... possibly too soon.
