The nose is pure Laphroaig with big, funky, peaty notes. The palate starts with big peat but gradually develops a sweet wine note, but the peat comes back for the finish along with some BBQ smoke. This is very tasty. It's everything you would want from a 16 year old Laphroaig.

 

B/B+

n: peat and chocolate covered cherries in a tin bucket.

 

p: A bit flatter than the nose suggests.  Fireplace soot and rubber bands.  Finish sticks around ridiculously long.

Pale yellow. Not a total Islay bomb, but you know it isn't from anywhere else. Got a little rubber, but generally just a solid peat presence. The palate is a little rougher than was expecting. Good amount of tannis, sweet peat and maybe even a little fruit. Nice finish. Solid B. [2/28/15]
