    Probably my favorite peated whisky. Easily surpasses the regular 10, just much more intensely flavored and shows why cask strength makes such a huge difference, especially for peat.
    • Nose
      smoke, iodine, sea salt, caramel like sweetness. Coriander and the antiseptic "chemical" or something like that.
    • Taste
      Much like the nose but much more rich. More flavors like cappuccino, wet leather, saltiness, big medicinal notes, salted toffee, lemony clean like a lemon-scented cleaning agent. Intense.
    • Finish
      Smoke, iodine, tobacco, and longish.

    Tasting notes are from Laphroaig.com.
    I write my impressions when I have tried this Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      Sweet cereals with biscuit notes, fresh oak, smoked cedar and Manuka honey. Amsterdam pipe tobacco, shoe polish and old leather combined with a touch of waxy church candle, vanilla cream, nutmeg and oak extracts.
    • Taste
      Sweet and spicy, with burnt oak staves, barbecued marshmallows, toffee and sea salt, vanilla and Belgium caramel waffles. Roasted coffee fudge cream on sticky toffee pudding, with a hint of white pepper and crushed cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Floral with spicy oak tannins, iodine and sea salt.
