Nosing: Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Maritime Notes Iodine Seaweed

Taste: Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Bonfire Smoke Vanilla Sweet Almonds

Finish: Medicinal Smoke Oak Vanilla Sweet

Comment: the most well rounded of the peated Islay's. Has this vanilla/sweetness hint that goes along with the smokiness, and this rounded character.

Nosing: syrup style, phenol, medical, slightly mentholic, herbal. Reminds me of some herbal cough syrups.

Taste: Herbal, smoky and phenollic, very intense taste of peat, a little bit of bitterness but in syrup kind of style, mouthwash, sweetness is nicely balanced between all of that.

Finish: At first very smoky but it fades quickly and lasting for medium time with all this complex tastes.

Comment: They say You love it or you hate it. I am more into loving it but still it will not be my favourite whisky for it's very special characker not for every ocassion. Anyway, there is nothing more medicinal than Laphroaig, and also there is nothing in general like Laphroaig. Also I do not agree that this is very heavily smoky. It is peaty but still it is not overpowering like in Ardbeg and not as smoky as Lagavulin. Alcoholwise it is very delicate.
