Member Ratings and Notes
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. 
If you're havin' whiskey problems i feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but the peat ain't one
Hit me 

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.
