I tell people newer to whicky than me that the most controversial scotch whisky, and maybe whisky in general, is Laphroaig.
Few exist between the extremes on love/hate continuum - you either dismiss it as just a little better than snake oil, or you revel in its complexity and oddity.
My quick snapshot of the experience:"Imagine the burning embers of a beach bonfire at low tide, right before you take a sniff of a NyQuil shot."
That captures all the nose and taste characteristics for me...
