Nose initially very similar to Laphroaig 10, but more assertive and fruitier (smoke/smoked pork shoulder, peat, brine, with sweetness in the background, getting hints of orange too)…reminds me of mixed berries, almost. Taste is smoky and sweet, malty, in a way similar to barbecue, with white pepper and some dried fruit in the background. Noticeably sweeter and almost more sherry-like, and less grainy than the 10. Caramel and a hint of coffee detected on the finish initially, but fades. Better w/o water.
This is outstanding stuff, possibly the best value in scotch there is.
