Nose
More like wood smoke than peat. Gradually, beach aromas emerge. Barbecued scallops?
Palate
Oily sweetness. Cereal grain. Toast. Buttery vanilla.
Finish
Peppery, lemony.
Comment
At first, I did not recognise this as a Laphroaig. Then I thought that age must have muted its attack, but 16 is scarcely venerable. Can a whisky be an old fogey?

Nose
Incredibly pungent, room-filling phenolics. Fishboxes, hot tar, engine rooms. With water, biscuity malt, wet rope, salt spray, dried fruits.
Palate
Very dry. Smoked paprika and balancing sweet maltiness.
Finish
Fish oil.
Comment
A classic Laphroaig. Allied? Beat this.
