Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 10-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.54 points

  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Tropical fruits on the nose, subtle medicinal peat on the palate, beautiful

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    N: Orange oils, (very Clynelish like), peaty, lemon, lemon merengue, Yorkshire pudding, black pudding - all surrounded by that old style provenance.
    T: Unbelievably rich, wonderful sour=sweet affair - Clynelish surely!?
    F: Murky, damp cardboard turning to plasterboard at the death.
    C: How is this Laphroaigh and not Clynelish? According to Colin Dunn this is how Laphroaig used to taste for 100 years before it settled for the TCP oil profile only in the last few decades [2016].

    Scores a B+ [89]

    Nose: Sherry, black tea, delicious forest honey and orange peels in peaty water. Add wet leather, cardboard and subtle farmy notes. Super round and harmonious with unusually little peat and smoke compared to Laphroaig's new year.
    Taste: Balanced, harmonious and ultra-spicy with notes of elderberry, dark berries, wood and coffee beans. Absolutely fat and a hammer in the taste (always declare blind as cask strength!)
    Finish: Long and full of spice - based on black tea, herbs, smoke, some peat, dark berries and a maritime character.
    Comment: So good and so different from Laphroaig from the "modern age"!
    93 points (nose: 92 / taste: 94 / finish: 93)

    This is the first bottling of the Laphroaig 10yo "Unblended" label, which was introduced around 1979/1980.

    The last bottle sold on whiskyauction.com was in Jan 2018 for 1505 Euro (Auction: 2018-01 / IM599).
