Has a really very nice nose that is really promising. Unfortunately, the taste is very tamed, downright "flat". In a direct comparison, the 25 Cask Strength is the significantly better (and cheaper) choice.
It's a shame that too much water was used here. With 46% or 48% things would certainly look a little better. This leaves a Laphroaig that is great on the nose, but quite boring on the palate.
