I have a few things hanging around that will fit well here. 8)

Laphroaig 18 OB 48%

Color: Dark Gold
Nose: Overall sweetness, dark toffee and chocolate, seaweed.
Palate: Oily, smooth, more sweetness that quickly gives way to iodine and a sweet peat fire burning in my mouth.
Finish: Finish is long and smooth, sweet smokey seaweed that lasts and lasts.

Great dram! :thumbsup:

I've always liked the Lappy 18. It's biggest problem has been the local prices here which were north of $120 originally. :shock:
