Top reviews for Laphroaig 10 Year Old:

— 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.

— One of my top 3

— If I were stranded on a desert island, this is the drink I'd want with me. Smoky, peaty, and oh so smooth.

Dave,
One of my favorite whiskys. Well worth the price. Best bang for the buck whisky.

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

Liquid smoke, with different flavors in every sip.

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

Heavy smoky peat, maybe butterscotch?

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,
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

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

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

Salty vanilla, the best flavor that I taste.
 
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
guest,
One of my favorites, tastes of smoke and band aids... but in a good way

Жестковат. Хотя я люблю дымный виски... Не зачет.

Michael
Michael,
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.

Reminds me of Seldovia, Alaska. Cold northern sea air blowing through a small village.

Smoky Peaty Strong It's just happiness in a bottle Sip it slowly and respect it
 
guest

Endlessly complex and enticing; each sip brings a deep reverie as the variety of notes reverberate around the palette in an entirely uncivilized manner.
 
guest

Питкий. интересная вкусовая композиция, вязкая по плотности. послевкусие на небе детской медовой акварели. Вкус соленый, йодированный

Heavily peated. Hot
