Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: mossy peat and some dry smoke but not as ashen as I recall Laphroaig being. Some medicinal notes but also fruity sweetness; maybe honeydew? Light and appealing.
Taste: light-bodied and smooth. Some sweetness right off the bat and then peat coats the mouth. Very easy to drink. The grain whisky base provides some bite at the back of the tongue, but peat definitely dominates this blend.
Finish: all peat.
Balance: strikes a unique balance with its light body, honied sweetness and strong peat character. Not the most complex blend out there but it does a lot of things right.
