N: More wood than the 10 and a little bit of sweet fruit.
P: The peat seems a bit more restrained here, offset by the wood.
F: Crisp, medium length.

I find this to be more accessible and balanced than the Laphroaig 10. Great peat but the wood shows, enjoyable, and should be a staple in most collections.

This is among the best scotch values available.

Smokey, musty nose.  Palate is very smokey and mildly sweet, with a whole bunch of peat/earth/that stuff and some medicine.  A peat treat and a good buy.

N: Stale bread, tea, minerals, with cinnamon gum

P: Tea, citrus and cherries

F: red licorice and peat

N: Very smokey - more so than 10yr

P: Bolder, more complex than 10 or 15

F: Lingered nice and long for me

 

Very nice, always a fan.  

 
Ries
 

n: Floral peat smoke, cinnamon candle, and those orange gummy candies with sugar all over them. An inviting sweet nose with a strong dose of wet ash.

 

t: Smokey heather with a whole lot of wood influence, then the brine & salt takes over. Bacon fat in bean soup. Surprisingly delicate on the phenols. The middle goes back to an orange citrus wax with youthful sweetness. The long finish is pure wet driftwood char.

 

More complex and fun than the 10 (and a bunch of other Laphroaigs). This would be great poured on fresh oysters.
