    After living with this bottle, I'm acclimating to it and liking it more and more.  Still, this is the full frontal assault. Deep iodine, richly flavored.

    For the Laphroaig smoke lover, this has to be close to nirvana.  Not so for me.  I prefer the smoke dialed back and balanced with other flavors.  A little water helps reduce the cask strength punch, but the smoky phenolics still dominate.
    • Nose
      Fruity, mild apple, hint of smoke.  Very pleasant and inviting. Surprisingly, it is unlike other Laphroaigs where I can smell the smoke across the room.
    • Taste
      OMG! Powerful smokiness, burnt plastic-like phenols, rubber tire, salty. Strong, in your face presence on the tongue and palate.  Full bodied. At 56.3% abv, it is definitely alcoholic, but the alcohol is not hot. It is hard to think about anything other than the smoke with this one.
    • Finish
      Long, lingering phenolic finish.  Minutes later there is still a campfire in my mouth.
