Nose: Smoky, youthful. Plenty of peat at first with developing sherry, Madeira. Caramel, vanilla.
Palate: Peaty, hay, sherry, raisins, oak, vanilla, quite coastal.
Finish: Long, bold. Peat smoke, big oak.
One of my favorites. Smoky, balanced, smooth. Maybe even better than the Ardbeg 10, just does not beat the Lagavulin 16 IMO. Buy it if you can get one.
