    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 212 bottles from cask 1980
    The cask is a first fill ASB (American Standard Barrel), and it has lent the liquid a bright golden hue. The first nose is an un-typically Ardbeg mix of burnt orange peel, Manuca honey (this contributed by our visiting Aussie Master of Wine) and Cape gooseberries, with sanded oak, a bosky charcoal note and antiseptic cream. The taste at full strength is sweet, citric and smoky. Water brings up sponge cake, Kaffir limes (found in Oz) and coriander seed; the mouthfeel is creamy, and the palate a nice balance of primary tastes, with fresh citric notes (orange Tic-Tacs) and Semillon grapes most obvious, with charred wood in the aftertaste and a good lingering length. Light and summery.
