Aggregate Score 80
Abomination has an intense dark brown color like maple syrup, Iranian tea, burnt wood, and dark cherry.
The moderately complex nose provides subtle hints of peat, vanilla, cream, nuts, and toffee.
 The front-end taste is dominated by an intense denatured burning sensation, which yields faint syrup, nuts, pepper, orange peel, and salt.
Although the finish is long, it's not very complex.  It tells a tale of fire and spice followed by the lingering residue of salt.
Given that this dram is 1-year Islay, probably Lagavulin, which underwent a modern biochemical aging process, it's surprisingly good, but definitely NOT AS GOOD AS LAGAVULIN 16.
