Member Ratings and Notes
Super smoke, and while I like it, it strikes me as a sort of one-dimensional traditional Islay that I've tried many times before.  But I'm sure I'll be drinking more of it... 
Yummy and odd.  B/B+ 

Decent nose, yet another average peated whisky.  I guessed this was a Caol Ila, but it turned out to be a Laphroaig.   I expect more from Laphroaig. (yeah, I'm dissin' you Caol Ila, what you gonna do about it tough guy?)

It's like licking a model T tire in moldy hay in a sulpher mine
