As the title states this reminds of smokey tea, the flavors and the smells are just moody and in my opinion perfect. Nose: Spice, earl grey tea, peat, smoke, iodine, sherry notes, berries. Palate: Cask shows its head in this dram, spice, peat,smoke, iodine, earl grey, moody sherry, berries, slight hint of oysters. Finish: Smoke, tea leaves, dark fruits now show, berries, brine is there in the end.

Very good, I have heard that in the 80's Lagavulin was better and i do not doubt that as the west over consumes there will continue to be a drop in quality. I would compare this to Ardbeg 10 with Laphroaig Triple Wood added to it, at the same time there is nothing like this i have had yet. If you have not grabbed a bottle i understand the cost is up there, at my local costco it was around 74.00 USD after tax which is cheap because at my local bevmo it cost 79.99 without tax.
