i'm so glad i purchased this bottle of laproaig. i wanted something different from my sherry cask finished aberlour 16 and aberfeldy 21. this hit the spot. this was matured in oak and you can taste the oak woodyness (sp?). i know some notice a medicinal smell but i do not. which is good because i don't like to drink medicine. the nose i think is the only weak point because it dissipates so quickly. the legs are slow, thick and consistent. the color is golden heather. the taste is so smooth with smoke and peppers. the finish lingers in your mouth and tongue. i like it. i enjoy this bottle without water but if you do add water no more than 1 drop or 2 please.
