First Cut is the deepest
An amazing zing left on the tongue. Straight with no water (or ice)
Can definitely taste aspects of Ardbeg.
A wonderful smokey aroma (smells like Polish Coal)
Nowhere near the peaty taste of Talisker...but nice and subtle in comparison.
Is it worth it?
I'd say so.
Great Xmas pressie

Smoke, Bacon & Caramel appears and reappears – each time larger.
Mine is the blank stare, eyes fixed to an empty black bottle of which once poured all the peat-smoke perfection one could conjure. My memory keeps adding stars to this review. I've become mad.

Lagavulin, Laphraoig---and Smokehead?
I've bought a number of scotches in this price range. I don't think I agree with the previous reviewers assessment. I would compare this with the Laphraoig 18 or the Laphraoig Quart Cask (which is probably one of the most amazing values of the heavily peated scotches) or with the Lagavulin 16. Those are somewhat cheaper, I'll grant you, but this offers some flavors those others don't. All said, this is a peaty, smoky spirit with a fair amount of complexity. If you've done the Lagavulin and the Laphraoig, you probably have to sample this.
