If you haven't tried this for a while the nose is pure smoke and peat at first. Consequently, I pick up prunes, ripe fruit and leather. Very nice!

Taste is well rounded and smooth, surprisingly considering how powerful this whiskey is. I taste smoked honey, leather again buy less so than the nose. Some citrus that dries the mouth slightly. Finish is looong and touched with salty brine. wow!

This is my first review and won't be my last. I have found that my tastes run to Islay primarily but do appreciate the highlands, speysides. Ahhh. what a wonderful hobby. :)

Welcome and great review especially with an Islay whisky my budding favorite region. I want to try the Lagavulin 16 and this is helping me go buy a bottle.
