Justin
Justin,
The depth of the smokiness and peatiness really hits the spot
 
Burt
Burt,
Obviously there is smoke and pepper, more subtle on the nose than the palate. The first sip causes the eyes to go wide in surprise at the hearty, savory, meaty cookout flavors. The 48% abv is apparent in the perception of alcohol burn. It is, however quite nice and not at all off putting. Allowing it to open up some minutes in the glass improves the balance of the rather distinct flavors. Very likeable!

Dan,
If you have ever been to a beach bonfire, it tastes like that. Huge oaky smoke tinged with sea salt. Some sweet on the finish as it fades. Smoky peat fans will rejoice.

David,
Not a bad taste but very smoky if you’re into that kind of taste and notes.

Loved it. Different than some of standard Laphroaigs (10yr, 10yr CS, 15yr). Enjoyed the complexity of it. Definitely got the salt that others mentioned.

Aaron,
Sweet and smokey meaty flavor. Not overwhelming, but very smokey compared to my usual whiskey.

Matthew,
Tastes like a campfire... which is true to style for Islay. Personally I don’t prefer Scotches from that region. If you are drinking it with something equally smoky it might mellow the smoke a bit. It does have quite a bit of sweetness and some salt and pepper notes. It’s interesting but not my preference.

Scott,
Peat isn't usually my thing but the complexity of this is really something. Got this as part of a sampler but might have to pick up a bottle of this at some point. Highly recommend.

Mathew,
Smells like a peat bog and tastes like a campfire. I guess if you’re into that sort of thing you’ll love this.
