Member Ratings and Notes
N: Apple pie crumble.  Yum!
P: Nice fruity sweetness, balanced light peat, but sadly a bit watery.
F: Lingers.
A gentle Laphroaig for chicks.    

Light turpentine, little else. Miniscule peat. Tastes watered down. Long faint finish.

Nose is chardonnay, vanilla, dried hay.  On the palate it's oddly watery -- very much so.  Mildly sweet, with tinges of earth, fruit, spice, and a trace of smoke.  There's not a whole lot going on.  Somewhat reminiscent an Irish whiskey.  As you drink more and it opens up, bigger fruit emerges with a cinnamon base.  As the glass continues to drain, the flavors diminish and some bitterness emerges.  A decently enjoyable glass and it goes down fine. 
Lightly fruited, pleasant, Islay nose. Taste is very thin. Mild, somewhat smokey finish. This is fine, but lacks the complexity of other Laphroig offerings, and particularly for the price is not recommended.
