    RATING: 87pts – |87 – 89 (B+) → Great| — Always nice to have a bottle of this.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose has an unique and contradictory profile with notes of first aid kit, creosote sleepers and peppery rubber.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is peaty and pungent with touches of black pepper, smoked meat, medicinal tools and cherry jam.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish fades smoothly with lingering spices, medicinal herbs and beautiful chemical smokiness.

  3. Gloin scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    I like the smell well, it fades in the mouth, but the finish increases again and is very long. Despite the low alcohol content of the whisky is strong. A solid bottling.
    • Nose
      sweet smoke, pear and lemon, the whisky behind the smoke is very mild and soft, a touch of anise, hardly oak, a little vanilla, plus a fresh herbal note, lemon balm, dill
    • Taste
      Noticeable start, light body, suddenly there is oak, which was missing in the nose, some lemon, the smoke comes late, but powerful
    • Finish
      Sweet smoke, milk chocolate, getting bitter, slightly bitter herbs, Wick Medinight, long

  5. HKWhiskyExplorer scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    The nose was a monster, but the palate was surprisingly smooth & sweet on palate. 45-50 PPM.

    In my pre-historical scoring method, it's a 9/10.
    • Nose
      Smoked wood. Salt. Peat. Medicinal.
    • Taste
      Dry seaweed. Sweet. Heavily peated.
    • Finish
      Mid finish. Oaky and malty.

    Laphroaig 10 Year Old (40%).

    May 2015 - Aroma - medicinal, burnt vanilla pod, twigs, smokey,earth, rhubarb, fabric plasters. Taste is smooth, a little tangy, soft medicinal, light smoke. Dirty. Very smooth, but a little thin maybe.

    March 2019 - Very Plasticky, medicinal, creosote and lots of wood preserver. Loads of wood sealant. Taste smooth easy loads of wood paint creosote fairly easy, oily and slightly underpowered, touch of banana, nice level of peat, little menthol, mint and wood ... I mean this stuff is good and incredible value and so drinkable. (3.5/84)

    A go-to whisky. I now see this as underpowered at 40%, although that is perhaps necessary to sell the Laphroaig character to a wide audience - it certainly took me a few goes to get to grips with it, even at the low 40% ABV. Not characterful enough for me to drink during my contemplative moments anymore, but I still often turn to this when I am in a pub or bar when socialising.

    Far from its former glory, but remains a classic when it comes to modern whisky, which everyone can find and buy. A personification of Islay, which transports you to the island as soon as you smell it. And it could take you to a hospital as well. Just mentally, of course.
