Quite different from the other Islay peat bomb distillery Ardbeg, truth be told I much prefer the Ardbeg 10 to this, the shortest way I can think to compare is the Ardbeg 10 is creamy, buttery sweet and peaty whereas the Laphroig is more iodine, medicinal, plasters, seaweed like and peaty. Just a preference of mine, I have friends who enjoyed this bottle much more then I did.
