Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 10-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.04 points

  1. Macheye scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Laphroaig 10 year old is both a classic, but also an extremely divisive whisky, It’s packed full of huge phenolic coastal flavours that are totally evocative of both its home distillery as well as its heritage. But, pronounced medicinal flavour is simply not going to be for everyone, and many will struggle with a palate that seems to belong more in a burning hospital than it does in a bottle of Scotland’s finest. Nevertheless, if you do enjoy this full-on flavour profile then Laphroaig 10 is still one of the very finest ten year olds out there.

    • Nose
      Instantly recognisable – Immediate medicinal smoke, iodine and tar. More than a hint of antiseptic, TCP and Dettol. It’s not a campfire/woody smoke – it’s of more chemical plant fire (think the slightly maligned Superman 3). Underneath this nasal assault are subtleties though – under ripe apples, slightly tropical fruits, creamy vanilla, honey and citrus. The coastalness of this whisky is exceeding high – saline, rock pools and granite.
    • Taste
      Rich, oily and proof that sometimes 40% ABV can do the business - a tsunami wave of smoke to begin - still quite chemical (iodine and surface cleaner), but now with a touch of fireplace smoke (ashes and sooty chimneys). Meatiness – BBQ – along with seaweed, rubber, barley water and a good squeeze of lemon juicy – tart, acidic, but still in step with the medicinal/woody peat. Sweetness develops in the mid-palate with honey and gentle golden-syrup – this plays nicely against both the peat and citrus. Minerality and coastalness extends into the back palate – wet stones, quartz, sea shells and brine.
    • Finish
      Pronounced minerality along with candied fruits and acidic lemons resulting in a medium to long finish.
