This is by far my favorite single-malt thus far. An absolutely wonderful dram that reminds me of huddling near an autumn camp fire, fueling up at a gas station in the small hours of the morning, and enjoying a tasty cigar to celebrate an expected baby. In other words, all the best moments in life. I love the smoothness of it. The lower alcohol level really helps all those beautiful flavors and scents come through. Laphraoig is like a cultured, winsome lady - sultry and seductive but in a low-key, nuanced way. Not for those on whom gentle subtlety is lost.
