Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 10-year-old

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.66 points

  1. Cheng Chee Kaan scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Vegetal peat. Burnt matter. Hint of smoke. Probably over-oxidized as this was opened for quite a while. It has lost the signature Laphroaig style of pungent peat smoke. Lesson learnt: Never leave an opened Laphroaig for too long! Anyway it becomes pretty complex. Sea wind and briny notes, some smoke caramel, underneath there is some sweet and salty notes. I like how the peat smoke evolve into old and dusty room smell. The medicinal notes is lingering behind all the above. Interesting.Palate: Peat smoke yes. Ash. Tar. Burnt organic matter. On top of that, some sweetness, saltiness, nuttiness. Some kind of banana cake notes. Weirdo. Pretty soft mouth feel. Finish: Warmth, smoky. Some herbal and medicinal notes. Pretty long. Balance: This is pretty balance. The palate is a little bit weird to me, but the finish is surprisingly good. The over-oxidized nose although make it more complex, but the complexity doesn't seem to make the whisky better.Final: This rating does not represent the original smell and taste of this whisky as I've left the bottle opened for too long. I remember this used to be an awesome whisky when it was first opened.Verdict: An over-oxidized Laphroaig. Peathead please do not do that.

    I didn't realize Jagermeister made whisky

  5. maltymate scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    A very good, complex scotch whisky with a huge flavor, especially for such a young age. But would be so much more if its flavor wasn't being restrained by chill-filtration. Cutting the artificial coloring and bottling at 46% abv wouldn't hurt either. God knows it didn't hurt Ardbeg's sales. But still, a very respectable, quality spirit.
    • Nose
      Complex and multilayered. Peat smoke, mineral, brine, seaweed, and medicinal. Beneath this initial punch is a subtle sweetness: floral notes, pepper, mild aniseed, and very slight mint.
    • Taste
      Bitter peat smoke, mineral, and oak arrive and continue into the development. Road tar, brine, vegital, seaweed. There is also a distant metallic, aluminum note. A little water brings out the brininess.
    • Finish
      Bitter peat and road tar continuing from the taste, sweet vanilla appears in the background, and tannins emerge rather quickly. A long, sustained finish. Bitterness gradually loses out to sweetness.

  6. mneme scored this whisky 80 points Member Junior

    Great and honest whisky, no frills, just 100% Islay!
    • Nose
      Smoke smoke and smoke again
    • Taste
      Of course, here too the smoke dominates, for 10 years old a very nice maturity.
    • Finish
      Departure very short, only the smoke remains for a very long time. If you exhale through your nose after 10 minutes, the smoke is back!

  7. erogers scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A remarkable example of Islay peat-influenced malt whisky.  This can be used as a standard of comparison for all other Islay malts.  Very well-balanced.  It’s more than just peat-smoke.  There are other flavors in the mix, making it multi-dimensional.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke pervades, with some vanilla/nougat in the background.  A bit of salt air.
    • Taste
      Strong peat smoke, iodine, and salt water.
    • Finish
      Smoky, with some seaweed, along with sweet toasted oats and charred wood.

    • Nose
      Salty, you smell the sea.
    • Taste
      Smoky and salty. You taste the peat.
    • Finish
      Also very smoky.
