  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Tried this side by side with the 10 yo Red Stripe 55.7%... I got a feeling this contains older Laphroaigs than the Red Stripe... deeper. more concentrated, earthy nose and palate... some reviews mentioned this as slightly fruity, but seriously, I didn't detect much of the fruits, but it is a tour-de-force of a Laphroaig. It is currently winter, and I would love to be drinking this everyday!

  5. aphex scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Nose : Peat smoke, stewed fruits, burnt wood, seabreeze and whiffs of iodine. With aeration, tar, ginger, earthy notes.

    Mouth : Peat smoke, ashes, medicinal notes, brine and plenty of delicious combo lemon and pepper.

    Finish : Long, peaty, smoky, lemony, earthy.

    The Green Stripe series is famous for being among the best. I must agree. This dram was superb.

  6. Allandale scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This is what Laphroaig 10 is al about. Complex and so well-balanced.
    • Nose
      Inmense,but fragrant, with herbal notes; Yellow Chartreuse ,angelica, Suze-like gentian, savoury and anise before the kelp kicks in, alongside heavier oils and phenols . This brightness contrasts with the tarry background.
    • Taste
      Huge smoke from the instant it hits the lip. Coal tar builds. There's the nutty sweetness seen on the nose. It's this sweet element  that is accentuated with water. adding texture and balance.
    • Finish
      Oily and lengthy, with some bay leaf.

  9. peatbogger scored this whisky 95 points Specialist

    It's the good old Laphroaig as I first tasted it, only more of it, more peat, more tar, more sea, more iodine, more alcohol, more everything... I love it!

    Only thing not to like about this one is that my bottle is now empty.

  10. Dionysus scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    This is simply amazing.

    The alcohol is too strong, 2 drops of water and it's heaven.
