I found this Whisky more refined than the Laphroaig 10 year and sweet with less of the smokey peat and Iodine taste. A plus or a negative based on what your trying to get out of the whisky taste wise.
From first taste its a smooth sweetness that glides over the tongue into a peat and smoked wood flavour. It has a pleasant hidden kick which gets you right at the end.
impressive and a smart Islay addition to your cabinet.
