Dan,
Love the smoke, but the peat just tastes young
 
Karen
Karen,
Smoke and peat, tasted like turpentine to me. Don't like at all.
 
Oliver
Oliver,
The marmite of whisky, love it or hate it. Smoky, tar, medicinal
 
Sita
Sita,
Earthy peat as you get down to the bottom. An older one would probably be smoother.
 
guest
guest,
It has a damp wet smoldering campfire type of smoke to it that I don’t particularly enjoy. It’s also a little too aggressive for my taste.
 
Greg
Greg,
Smokey Islay whisky with some lighter fruit notes. Good Dram when a Smokey scotch is on order.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Big smoke and peat, vegetal and bright citrus cleaner kinda notes, and maybe a bit of black licorice/fennel going on. A funky take on Islay peat
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
The go to Islay for me! It’s like drinking in some smoked and salted ham by the fireside. Perfection.
 
Bryon
Bryon,
Like smoke? Want a campfire in a bottle? Get this! Not as deep and complex as Lagavulin 16 and lighter still than Ardbeg 10, but a nice peaty dram. A little sharp around the edges and more honey than caramel. More light fruits like apple with some citrus as compared to plums and dates of Lagavulin.
 
Leif
Leif,
So I've discovered that smokey and peaty are not my thing. This bottle is going to sit on the shelf for a long time.

One of the best scotches. Very smooth, peaty, smokey. Great after taste.

Heavy smoke on nose, but sweeter finish. Complex and delicious.

One of my favorite peated whisky's
 
guest
guest,
I love the peaty taste and the aftertaste on my tongue afterward. The 10 year old is my favorite, but I like them all. It is good sipping whiskey so you can enjoy the flavor over and over
 
Elliot
Elliot,
It is as smooth as it is smokey, and it's very smokey. Really enjoyable.
 
Oskari
Oskari,
Not for me, however if you like really smoky and peaty whisky this is extraordinary value.
 
Mike
Mike,
Really nice taste, the smoke is for real. At first the smell can bring you back but its really smooth.
 
Gary
Gary,
A great classic. Can’t get away from this stuff. Good balance of smoke and peat.
 
Scott
Scott,
So tasty if you like smoke and peat. After a couple sips it tastes so sweet and fresh... Can see why this is a classic! And at this price it is going to be a fixture in my bar.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
cask strength batch 11
 
Jack
Jack,
Great whiskey, not as peaty as the Ardbeg, but all over good. The only thing I am not a fan of is the slightly medicinal aftertaste.
 
Michael

Craig
Craig,
Smooth peak and smoke. Delicious.
 
Paul
Paul,
Taste like vanilla ice cream that fell into campfire ashes, got doused in iodine, and wrapped up in salty seaweed.
 
Alphonso
Alphonso,
My sipper. I was hooked first time I had it. I keep a bottle in the bar. Plus you can own a piece of land at the distillery when you purchase (see attached tag).
 
guest

Delicious, oily, lingering salt/brine and sweet honey
 
Marty
Marty,
Darn near undrinkable! Too much peat, I shared the bottle with four others. They all said the worst drink they have ever had. For me it was next to last
 
John
John,
Classic Islay.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Leathery. Like beating my tongue with a leather strap. I love it,
 
Laura

Lots of peat smoke up front, slight vanilla flavor in the middle, spicy at the finish

Joseph
Joseph,
This is the scotch that made me get into Islay single malts and holds a special place in my heart for that. I love it.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Absolutely love Laphroaig!! The complex, Smokey richness is just so delicious!
 
guest
guest,
Love it. Like a liquid campfire
 
Greg
Greg,
This is a terrific scotch if you like a little smoke or want to try something with some smoke. It drinks very smooth and finishes without any burn. Very nice!
 
guest
guest,
Medicinal and heavily peated; not for everyone.
 
Tommy
Tommy,
Too peaty! Tastes like the smell of a permanent marker.
 
Andras
Andras,
Campfire, bandaid, ocean. One of the great bang for your buck
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Light. Smoky. Full of flavor. Smooth and easy to drink. I’ve yet to experience a better drink.
 
brandon
brandon,
Laphroaig has yet to disappoint me and the 10 year continues it's excellence. Smoke wafting the second my dram was poured. Smoke, peat, seaweed, and salty. Perfect end to a night.
 
Steven
Steven,
a little phenol on the tongue at first taste, smells like a autumn campfire, lovely smoke and salt similar to dewars though smoother still. 7.5
 
Andrew
Andrew,
I’m normally not a fan of heavy peat, but this scotch expended my flavor profile.
 
guest
guest,
It’s okay. Nail polish not very smooth
 
David
David,
Really petey but great
 
Heath
Heath,
Great entry into Smokey complex whisky. You’ll have fun finding the vanilla underneath the smoke and peat as you increase your palate skills.
 
Jim
Jim,
Did not care for it, both on the nose and taste. Old rubber gloves??
 
guest
guest,
Different
 
Chris
Chris,
Was my favorite pre-Ardbeg. Medicinal and iodine notes on the nose. Really smokey up front, but has nice delicate fruity sweetness underneath. A bit of a band aid note on the taste, which goes away after becoming accustomed to the peat. Love this whisky.
 
MICHAEL
MICHAEL,
I was very surprised by this bottle. I love Laphroaig, one of my go to scotches. This particular bottle was not what I expected. The Laphroaig 10 is usually a very smoky scotch, that when I open a bottle my wife comments from the other side of the house. This 10 year old bottle was like a cross between the 10 year old and the triple wood. I pleasant surprise that I have already recommended to a number of friends.
 
Tim
Tim,
Every once in a while you need something to punch you in the taste buds.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
SMOOTH, PEETY, LITTLE SMOKY
 
Dylan
Dylan,
One of the best Islay has to offer. Original is best.
 
Trevour
Trevour,
A standard to keep. Smoky peaty goodness at elevated level but not to the extreme of older ages. Dark sweetness balanced out for a meaty glass. Best on a dark winters day
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Not the greatest fan. Notes of iodine, leather, and Hints of smoke/wood some sort. Not the worst but by far from the best. Taste like campfire in my mouth.
 
Larry
Larry,
One of the few "Peat/Smoke" flavored Scotch Whiskeys available here...always a favorite if I cannot find Askaig....
 
Angelo
Angelo,
One of my first peated whisky experiences, and a classic go-to. Very medicinal, sea salt, meat, iodine. It builds a sweetness over multiple sips, but still stays firm in the savory realm. Open the bottle and it reeks of burning tires, and I love it! Since digging into Islay Scotch, I think I prefer Ardbeg 10 as a more frequent drinker, but Laphroaig 10 has it's permanent home on my bar cart. This one will definitely split opinions, but if you're a fan of peat and smoke, you should at least try it!
 
Paul
Paul,
Light golden color. Nice, smokey smell. Healthy peaty taste. Goes down smoothly, feels peppery. I like it a lot. Great with grilled meat and a campfire.
 
Mark
Mark,
Very peaty, smokey, and salty. Very strong flavors that can be abrasive to some.
 
Eric
Eric,
Smells and tastes like campfire. Fairly light bodied.
 
Joe
Joe,
I like Scotch, but this one is way over the top smokey.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Smoky and a thin mouthfeel. Not really my thing, but it's a good price for what you get if you like peat.
 
Miguel
Miguel,
VERY smokey, strong seaweed and smoke on the nose.... tastes like a campfire, in a good way!
 
Andy
Andy,
So that is what smokey smells like. You can't miss it. Somehow it is a bright smell of smoke and effervescence. It enters the mouth smoothly then has a pleasant medicinal taste and leaves with pepper and spice. I am new to this so taster beware.
 
Derek
Derek,
My go to
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Peaty,smokey but easy to drink
 
Paul
Paul,
Smooth, and just the right amount of peat. Nice, long smoky finish. For sure going to be a staple in my home bar
 
Bryce
Bryce,
A classic Islay Scotch! Peat through and through, but with a nice citrus taste to balance it out. Plus for the price it is a solid choice and will never disappoint. If you are newer to whisk(e)y this is not for you, but if you are familiar you did to try this staple!
 
Szymon
Szymon,
I’m getting a dark tea note boarder line roasted plumb on the nose. Great zesty finish and very consistent (with the peat). Love it!
 
guest
guest,
My favorite scotch.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Heavy peat with lemon and forest. Awesomeness.
 
Shauna
Shauna,
All smoke, peat, and spice. I don't like it, but i respect it for what it is.
 
Eron
Eron,
Very different from the Scotch I have had in the past. Smoke on the nose and the palette that lasts for days... very enjoyable.
 
Arte
Arte,
Nose: Wonderful peat moss with heather and ocean scent Taste: Wonderful, water mellows overall characteristics
 
Chase
Chase,
Favorite scotch and whisky in general. The best.
 
Michael
Michael,
Really easy drink.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
This is one of my favorite Scotches to sip on regularly. It's not an expensive bottle at about $45 USD. 2 fingers a couple times a week won't hurt the wallet too bad compared to a lot of other scotches that are this good to sip. When you find one that's this good and only $45, tell me.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Another peat bomb. Very good, but veryyyy peaty. Hits hard right away and doesn't let up. The phenols are profound.
 
Charlotte
Charlotte,
My intro to Islay and dear to my heart for that. As I've tried others I've tended to have only when in the mood for extra peat and smoke, which isn't always.
 
James
James,
With blue-cheese and a rye cracker, this is amazing. But I have a weakling palette, and the smoke level on this stuff is BRUTAL for me. I could politely drink it in good company, and will occasionally pour a finger for myself, but I have had the same bottle for three years now and its still serving me well. ;)
 
Michael
Michael,
A little too smoky
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Smokey, full bodied with a really smooth finish. Always my favorite single malt, at every age and finish.
 
guest
guest,
What is left to say about this evergreen peat bomb?
 
guest
guest,
My personal favorite. Very Smokey. Feels like sitting by a fire on the beach tasting the salt air.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
First single malt scotch I ever had - almost 20 years ago. It's the yardstick I measure all scotch by.
 
Josh
Josh,
I like a very strong peaty smokey scotch and this delivers in spades. Just a hint of bitterness to balance it out with a strong smoke finish on the back of the tongue. Tried with a Tillamook smoked sharp white chedder and it was amazing.
 
Amber
Amber,
Very peaty and smokey!
 
Karri
Karri,
First real whisky that I ever bought myself. The taste changed my life view how I looked at spirits in general. The smokey flavor took me into a journey and I haven't looked back since.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
a very good Islay; not too peaty, but sufficient; smooth and almost too easy to drink
 
Josef
Josef,
Prefer quarter cask
 
Robert
Robert,
I prefer the 10 year old better than the 15 or the 25 year old because the smokiness and peaty taste is much more intense. One of my favorites.
 
James
James,
My first attempt at a peated scotch. Yup- Peaty. I like one glass every now and then. Can’t do more than one though.
 
Eric
Eric,
I can handle smoke, but I can't handle this much smoke. You're either a Laphroig drinker, or you're not. I'm not.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Amazing if overpowering smell and taste. After a few sips you get used to it and pick up the other rich flavours.
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Nice and peaty!
 
Harvey
Harvey,
Penny for penny this may be the best "peaty" single malt scotch I have tasted. It is rich with peat, smooth and tasty, front and back. Great buy.
 
David
David,
Extremely smokey and peaty. Most of the other flavors are overpowered.
 
Mark
Mark,
Love this bottle and the peat flavorings that come through. Smokey and peaty, but smooth and easy to drink (too easy I might add). :-)
 
Michael
Michael,
Beautiful islay scotch Dark peaty notes
 
David
David,
Love the peaty smokiness
 
Burton
Burton,
A fishy briney smoky concoction that somehow works. Thinner on the mouth feel than some competitors. But still worthwhile.
 
Michael
Michael,
Smoky but not as oily as Caol Ila or Ardbeg.
 
guest
guest,
Sister’s gift Lacks deep taste but was good 40% alcohol in general
 
nikita
nikita,
my favorite whiskey
 
guest

Smoky goodness.
 
guest
guest,
Far too peaty. Just not my cup of tea.
 
Todd
Todd,
Aroma has peat and smoke, along with licorice or something similar. You get the peat, earthy, smokey, along with oak and some spice. Very flavorful overall, and it takes some getting used to - but worth the effort to do so. A dash of water smooths things out quite nicely, and might be a good way to drink this. I've had this before, but I generally prefer the similarly priced Ardbeg 10 and Lagavulin 8 over the Laphroaig 10. It's a good one to keep around on the liquor shelf as people that love it *really* love it.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
For a Smokey peatey whisky I prefer Laphroig over Bowmore. Very much enjoy the first drink but typically loses its luster after that
 
Mary
Mary,
Not a big scotch gal but this wasn’t bad
 
guest
guest,
Mature flavor, campfire
 
Logan
Logan,
It is difficult to not to rate this very high. Excellent smoke and flavor. I feel like I’m drinking from a stream of life-water in the foggy woodlands of Scotland.
 
Derryck
Derryck,
This is a marvelous Islay to be only 10 years old! Love the rich smokiness, but also perks my interest in trying other Islay's.
 
Davis
Davis,
I loved this! It’s not for everyone, but I had one taste and instantly fell for it. The best way to describe this is: it tastes like your sweater smells after sitting around a fire.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Overly smokey, very bold flavor
 
Matt
Matt,
Bacon and smokey but with lots of sweet berries and dried fruit. Smokey and sweet on the palette. Smokiness lingers in the finish and beyond.
 
William
William,
Smokey at the start, transitioning to some mild peat and sweetness but with a lasting, powerful, slightly displeasing saltiness
 
Juan
Juan,
I really love this whisky. It opens up with intense smoke and peat followed by a crisp and wonderful sweetness and finishes with hints of salt and iodine immediately followed by more delicious smoke and peat. I absolutely love this!
 
STEVEN
STEVEN,
not for all but great
 
Charles
Charles,
A punch of wood, something I think I'd drink after a battle if given the chance.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Super not my thing. Wouldn't drink even if gifted.
 
Vera
Vera,
Don’t care for the peaty or the smoky flavor
 
guest
guest,
Good peat/smoke
 
Robert
Robert,
Very peaty. With a drop or two of water makes it sweeter. Still can get over the taste of band-aids. I like smoke but I may not like Islays.
 
James
James,
Smokey initially followed by notes of dry fruit on the back end. Enjoyable peated whiskey that's not to overpowering.
 
John
John,
Wow there is a lot of peat here. Not much of a burn but a ton of smoke, a bit of seaweed and that salty, briny flavor from the sea. Intense but delightful.
 
JOSH
JOSH,
"Like drinking a mermaids bath water"

Quintessential whiskey which holds a very special place in my life. I’ll go out of my way to get a bottle.
 
Sara
Sara,
This is how I learned I am a peat monster...
 
Jyrki
Jyrki,
This will take you around the corner and kick your ass. You will hate yourself for loving this. How is it possible that licking a burned stick then drinking sucared seawater on top of it be one of the best things in the world.
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Full bodied. Smoky. Not for the beginner. Seaweed. Peaty. Long lasting.
 
guest

God, men lidt for røget
 
Zach
Zach,
Who knew the smell of band aids could taste so wonderfully sweet and peaty. My absolute go-to. As someone said before, you either love it or you hate it.
 
Rahul
Rahul,
Smoky, Peaty.
 
Sei-IS
Sei-IS,
The ultimate peat, dark and spicy for me and although the tasting notes say licorice I never actually taste this... Shame I love that licorice finish in a whisky. Everyone should taste a Laphroaig once if you are a whisky drinker... You will want another.
 
Duane
Duane,
Nice dram. Not the best peat I have tasted. This was the ash taste I assumed I would not like. Glad Son of a Peat was my first experience. This may have put me off peat.
 
Michael
Michael,
I really dig it...you either love it or hate it
 
Megan
Megan,
The double IPAs of scotch. Absolute quality product, however you drink this to let people know you're drinking it. Peat on the front. Peat in the middle. And guess what? Peat on the finish. The peat of this peat is what peats the peat in peat peat. Peat.
 
Alex
Alex,
Peat isn't my thing but I see the appeal. Cant see myself spending my own money on it but if its free I definitely wouldn't say no.
 
Collin
Collin,
Classic islay scotch for a fair price

Smokey, intense and very drinkable.

Classic Islay malt, strong flavors and always a great experience

My favorite, peaty and hot!
 
guest

Not Lagavulin but still worth the money.
 
Spencer
Spencer,
Smoky and peaty. Enjoyed this one.
 
Navdeep
Navdeep,
Unrefined, but the Laphroaig 10 is meant to be that, they know what they’re giving you, it’s a little rough around the edges. It punches you in the nose and on the pallete. Not for beginners if you’re trying peat. Again do not start your peat journey with this.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
This has become my go to Whisky, I find the palate very earthy and gentle with just the perfect amount of smoke and peat.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Like a refreshing evening with a warm, smoky campfire. The flavor spiral is spot on for this dram; the smoky peat is definitely at the front and a slight salty afterflavor is noticeable. It's not an every day kind of dram, but definitely something to break out once in a while.
 
Pierre
Pierre,
Was my first entry into Islay Whiskies and one of my favorites.
 
Graham
Graham,
Not like a go-to whiskey, but a nice addition when you're in the mood for something different. A little water will cut the strongest flavours and add some back end complexity.
 
Phillip
Phillip,
I'm a beginner, and this is still too weird for me
 
John
John,
My go to whisky
 
Justin
Justin,
I love smokey/peated whiskey, but sometimes I don't want something that's over the top and completely dominated by the peat. For me that's the Laphroaig 10 year. For those who don't like peat, this would probably be way to much smoke, but for those who love it, this is somewhere between not enough to just enough. I find it to be easier drinking and more casual than it's smokier brethren.
 
Matt
Matt,
This is a great example of a smoky, peaty, Islay single malt as I believe most people would expect from this region. From my perspective, it has some similarities to Lagavulin 16 and Ardbeg Uigeadail.
 
guest
guest,
I like peat but I strongly prefer the Ardbeg ways.
 
Simone
Simone,
Hands down, one of the best entry level smoky scotch whiskies out there.
 
Marguerite
Marguerite,
Smokey, peaty, and delicious. A classic Islay Scotch.
 
Robert
Robert,
The first scotch that I was introduced to. Big peat, big smoke, and ocean taste. Perfect sipping whiskey and pairs nicely with a good cigar. I enjoy it with an ice cube and that iodine flavor mellows our and other flavors open up, especially the vanilla flavor, once’s a little water is introduce.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
This is simply my favorite. The aroma is peat and more peat, with a sea salt and vanilla sweetness. The taste is ridiculously smooth, somewhat sweet with tons going on. I don’t know how to describe it other than complex, smoky, herby wonderful goodness.
 
Dave
Dave,
One of my favorite whiskys. Well worth the price. Best bang for the buck whisky.
 
Tong
Tong,
Smoky and classy laphroaig.
 
Leanna
Leanna,
Very smokey, and smooth. An almost leathery peatiness. I've had several similar whiskeys, from other laphroaigs to lagavulin etc, and this one is still my go to for how easy it is to drink
 
Nicolas
Nicolas,
I really enjoyed it, subtile smoke, very easy on the palate, doesnt burn, super smooth. Sitting next to the Lagavulin 16 so far
 
Renee
Renee,
Liquid smoke, with different flavors in every sip.
 
guest

One of my top 3
 
Minna
Minna,
Great entry level smoky scotch whisky. Warm and soft.
 
Scott
Scott,
Very smoky, light in flavor, sweet late in the finish
 
Charlie
Charlie,
For me this is nice for a sip or two but hard to sit down to a whole glass. Wonderful campfire smell. There is an incredibly strong smoke taste and the salt/iodine/spice reminds me of a brine that you would use for a Thanksgiving Turkey.
 
Ben
Ben,
Nose: Tar, creosote, seaweed, peaty earthiness, burning wood, smoke. Taste, big smokey peaty arrival, seaweed, honey. Lasting finish with a medicinal and honey aftertaste, developing further with a saltiness after a few minutes. With water and time, the components become more distinctive and vegetal notes begin to develop and a sweetness creeps in.
 
Cody
Cody,
Holy smoke! And it just keeps smoking for minutes after on your tongue. Excellent
 
Bradley
Bradley,
If I were stranded on a desert island, this is the drink I'd want with me. Smoky, peaty, and oh so smooth.
 
Christopher

Delicious with a strong peaty taste. Not for everyone, but I find it to be a delightful drink!

Heavy smoky peat, maybe butterscotch?
 
Li-anne
Li-anne,
Not my dram. Tastes like shoes as cigars
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
One of the smokiest islays which I love. Good peat and smooth creamy finish. Will remain a favorite.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Classic! I admit I love Lagavulin more personally, but this is definitely in the same league. While I've learned the Quarter Cask version is also a step above this one, I keep coming back to the original for serving to lovers of Scotch looking to experience true Islay goodness. It's a striking appearance and palette with enough smoothness to take the edge off for drinkers with less Islay experience, and I won't feel as bad if they don't finish it compared to if I had poured them Lagavulin. Now for experienced drinkers, this one is beautiful neat with only a few drops of cold water to break it.
 
Jason
Jason,
Nose is deceiving. The taste is full of smoke and peat and a small bit of vanilla. Once you add a few drops, the nose and flavors really brighten up.

Joseph
Joseph,
First smoky peaty scotch, first taste is something like what the hell but before you’re halfway through the bottle you can’t stop yourself from coming back.
 
Piotr
Piotr,
I do believe people can love it. I don’t but I appreciate it so much that I’m going to have it again sometime. ... and it is a month later and... I like it. Peaty, not sweet, some vanilla, nice peaty finish.
 
JOSE
JOSE,
My very first peaty scotch! Tastes like taking down a strong tea made from charred wood but I grew to like the aroma and the taste of smoke.
 
Scott
Scott,
Super smokey, peaty, and BBQy, much more than most other scotches I've tried. Maybe a pinch too much in that direction for my taste, but still a solid scotch!
 
Alon
Alon,
smoky, peaty, slightly fruity, decent aftertaste, good Islay scotch - very solid.
 
guest
guest,
Not my favorite but definitely appreciate this expression of whisky for its uniqueness. Aromas of thick black/forest green markers (phenols), barbecue smoke, charcoal Tastes of examination gloves, rubber, tar Warming sensation when it hits my tongue with an oily sensation. Reminds me of the bottom floor of a cruise ship where we would enter/exit
 
Michael
Michael,
I love this scotch!!! I love that peat flavor!!!
 
Erik
Erik,
Laphroaig , my favorite scotch overall so far, had a few, like 15, but 10 also very good
 
Dallas

Like french kissing a goddess of smoke and flame. My favorite.
 
Justin
Justin,
I love this Scotch! The flavor is off the chart. The peat is so heavy that I feel like I am sitting by a campfire in a swamp.

Christian

Taste too peaty for my taste
 
Thom
Thom,
Heavier on the phenols than the Caol Ila 12 and the Bowmore 12. Less smoke than both too. Not enough smoke for me, but adequate peat. It's a Tuesday or Wednesday dram.
 
Edward
Edward,
The cigar whiskey. Grows on you and has a bit of a kick.
 
Christine

Lots of flavor, love the smoke and peat. A bit spicy for me, but worth it.

Salty,smoky. Doesn't compare to the 18y old though

Salty vanilla, the best flavor that I taste.
 
Scott
Scott,
smokey smell. moderate finish.
 
guest
guest,
My first peated whisky. It has a more pronounciated nose and taste compared to my earlier single malts, but that makes it even easier to describe: smoke and peat, salt and pepper, with a hint of tart and vanilla. Somehow, this 10 year old makes me think of a late-night campfire on a stormy beach... :). Great dram! (Mine's bottled at 40% abv)
 
guest

Nose: Campfire on the beach, heavy peat, novocaine, earth and leather, vanilla and oak if you give it time. Arrival: Peat, salt, seaweed. Finish: Intense burst of cinnamon, lingering tobacco with hints of leather.
