    I don't often drink a heavily peated Scotch; but, when I do this is an excellent choice. (If you have tried this in the past and were not terribly impressed, make note John is now using older malts in the blend for more complexity.) This vatted malt is about 2/3 Caol Ila, about 1/3 Laphroaig, and a 1% touch of a Highland malt blend. Nosing gives strong peat and a little sea brine. Nose again and there is a very subtle fruitiness--white grapes? Color in the glass is super pale, like a white wine. In the mouth the peat and brine are forward, but is soon rounded out by the underlying sweet fruitiness. The finish is rather long, the peat going the distance.

    On the nose peat and smoke, of course, with a bit of iodine/Band-Aids. Relatively light body, with a long, smouldering finish. Apparently this is a blend of Caol Ila and Laphroaig. I'm not familiar with the former, but assume that's where the iodine and lightness comes from since I don't typically get those from Laphroaig. Wouldn't rank it above the Laphroaig 10, but it's a nice change of pace.

    This is solid. Not too peaty and has a nice mellow overall taste. Layered and complex, I can taste hints of honey thus far. Full, rich, and sweet.
