Nose of vanilla, some chadonnay, and of course smoke. Palate is smoke, gentle sweetness. This is good, not super-smoky but enough to satisfy a peathead. What's here is good. Importantly, just a tiny splash of water improves this greatly -- much more richness and smoke opens up, and the fire and less-lovable aspects are tamed. The finish fades quickly, which is disappointing. But add a few drops of H20 to this, and for certain you've got a nice, smoky, very drinkable companion.
When you pour the whisky, baby, pour one for the Duke. Just don't pour him 14 more, cause it might make him... anyway, I really liked this malt as a slightly more toxic Lag 16. Nice smoky-ness. The peat somehow soaks into the tongue like sponge and then stays with you for a non-traditional finish. More please.
This was great. Richer than the 10, and a heavier mouthfeel than the LP1 which I enjoyed very much. This has a little more of everything. More heat and smoke, but probably complex wood smoke, not as pure peat. And some caramel sweetness to balance it. I kept going back for this one.
