    • Nose
      Very phenolic and peaty initially, but after a few minutes in glass, the peat begins to take a bit of a back seat -- now there's vanilla, caramel, and toffee (probably from the bourbon casks) but you can also tastes the sweet sherry in this. 
    • Taste
      A wonderful sweet-phenolic one-two punch! A good balance. I would prefer this to be more obviously fruity than syrupy, but for a "10" year old, I cannot really complain. Not terribly complex, but it's highly enjoyable. 
    • Finish
      Lingering sweetness. Stewed pears and cooked strawberries along with the peat. There's good power in this.

    Islay und Laphroaig at its best.
    • Nose
      Der Rauch, obgleich ordentlich phenolisch, hält sich etwas im Hintergrund und sorgt so dafür, dass frische Aprikosen und Pfirsiche die Nase umschmeicheln. Mit einer salzigen Meeresbrise wirkt leicht und erfrischend in der Nase.  
    • Taste
      Im Antritt kräftiger Rauch und Asche, aber gleich kommen auch die Aprikosen und nun auch Birnen und grüne Äpfel. Eiche schiebt schon recht früh nach, Kräuter und Lakritz kommen, werden aber durch einen Löffel Honig nicht zu dominant. Teerpappe und feuchter Asphalt.
    • Finish
      Lang und leicht trocken. Erkalteter Rauch eines Lagerfeuers, getrocknete Aprikosen, Salz und Lakritz.
