Just wonderful!! Never would I think mellow would apply to Laphroaig, but it does to this expression. The nose is honey, mossy and peaty, with some light (as yet unidentifiable) undertones. The palate is smooth and creamy, to me similar to Highland Park. Noticed lots of caramel, chocolate and sweetness. Very sweet, in fact, for a Laphroaig. Not the overwhelming peat and smoke bombs of other Laphroaig expressions. There were some distinct floral nuances here as well. Overall, it seemed leathery and creamy, more than smoky. The aftertaste is long and lingering, with smoke and peat, but primarily leather and meat left on the throat. Just absolutely delicious!!

Laphroaig smells like insulin... Too adulterated for my taste and olfactory senses.
