While I enjoy peat and smoke, when I had to compare Ardbeg 10 and Laphroaig 10 I went for the Ardbeg. However i decided to give Laphroaig's other expressions that have a higher proof a chance and I am impressed.

Nose: A tang of salt, seaweed, salted fish, vanilla, spice, peat, smoke that reminds me of a barbecue at the beach. Palate: Strong Maritime notes, vanilla, peat, salted fish, peat, smoke, dark fruits. Finish: Still has the maritime notes, but now with a spiciness that is impressive with a final hint of vanilla to round it out.

In conclusion, this dram is an acquired taste and if it is your cup of tea there is nothing better.

Thanks for the review! I really like this dram as well, though it generally doesn't "get as much love" as the other Laphroaig expressions. I find the sherry influence to be very subdued, complimenting rather than overpowering the more familiar "maritime" Laphroaig flavors that you mention in the review. I'd love to try the PX cask so that I can experience a heavier sherry influence in a Laphroaig...

Anyway, looking forward to the other reviews.

I feel it is better than standard Laphroaig because of the higher proof, the sherry just drifts through the expression, while the maritime notes almost punch you on the first dram the tang of salt was so strong i instantly fell in love. I just reviewed Glenlivet 15, on Saturday i will review the laddie 10, then sunday the Glenlivet 18 followed by Old Pulteney 12.

I'm with you on this. This is my second favorite (behind the 18)of the regularly available 'phroaigs. I find the sweet/peat/salinity and the abv. to be just right.
