The nose kicks off with a thick smokey cloud of sweet peaty wonderment, infused with big crashing waves of iodine, seaweed and the smell of a cleaning trolley being dashed from one end of a hospital waiting room to the other.
Subtle hints of poached pears, garish grapefruit and an echo of peppery cocoa make for the next set of sensations, along with a couple of glugs of salt and cedar infused fruit syrup.
The palate continues to deliver a wealth of smokey sweet medicinal delights including something very TCP-esque, along with a tray of warm slightly over salted and over sweetened homemade digestive biscuits.
Subtle oozing waves of vanilla and oak infused caramel then gently but confidently emerge to provide a perfect base of balance. Followed by a wealth of washed up spice infused seaweed, that has been slicked together by the oil from a leaking fishing trawler.
The 'Laphroaig 10' is one heck of a peat-opian fuelled dramming juggling act. Not only is it monsterously yet magnificently medicinal, it also just happens to be a marvellous moreish-ette of a dram.
