This will be nowhere near as amazing as @BDevries review. But i will do my best and try to mix some metaphores into my usual boring analytical reviews.
Bottle has been opened almost a week and is 90% full. This is my third glass from this bottle.
Nose: A dancing nose. It's as if sweet and smoke are on a see-saw both going back and forth. Sweet...smoke...sweet...smoke...also get sea salt and oddly enough powdered dish detergent.
Palate: What the hell. Where is the peat bomb I was expecting? No smoke to be found. It's lightly sweet. And boring. Not much going on. The body is nice and oily, albiet thin. Just weak. Hmm.
Finish: Ah, there is the smoke again. Welcome back dear friend. Finish is medium-long with smokey BBQ balanced with sweet oily plums and raisins. Much better.
Overall: I had high expectations for this so maybe that's why I'm a bit dissapointed. The flavors seemed subdued and this really isn't the big islay peat bomb i was expecting. For something peaty I think this bottle of lag16 sits well below the Uigedail I recently had and even Talisker 10 and Laphroig quarter cask. Wonderful nose, enjoyable finish, but a thin, sweet palate with no smoke? Maybe I'm crazy...who knows. I'll stick with Laphroig quarter cask and Talisker 10 when I want a peat fix.
