Colour: Dark gold (probably not natural?)

Nose: Young peat and strong iodine hit the nose first with hints of seaspray and some pepper. Malty notes emerge with sweet smoke and honey.

Palate: Smooth, medium bodied, green earthy peat, dry, green pepper, maybe just a hint of sweet spice late in the palate.

Finish: Lingering, Smoke, dried herbs and earthy notes linger long after.

Comments: Seems a young, with not a lot of notable oak character, but peat lovers will enjoy the pure peaty flavours that dominate the whisky.

Just tried it now and you are bang on the colour and iodine. Excellent review.

Just bought a bottle and had a first taste. I totally agree with your review. This whisky seems quite young. As far as I have understood this is a Lagavulin. Here in Norway this bottle (the 40%) is just 6 pounds cheaper than the Lagavulin 16, and the difference is striking. This cannot even be half the age of the Laga 16. But a nice everyday dram anyway.

I agree on what Eivind wrote, nice everday dram and nice to offer people who doesnt really knows whisky but likes peat.
