I could not say how much batches differ, but wow. This is the best Ardbeg I’ve had to date. Had this beside Lord of the Isles and this was the clear winner. Lord of the Isles may have been oxidized, I can’t say for sure, but it was not impressive at all. This however was damn near perfection. Top shelf stuff.
Tarry ropes and s’mores. Toasted marshmallow, milk chocolate and graham cracker. Nice inky smoke. Abv is not only not a problem, it is perfect the way it is. Waves of flavour, elegant and no flaws whatsoever. This is shows the power of a true small batch, where all the flaws are ironed out.
Very rich, great full mouthfeel, damn near perfection. Toasted marshmallow, creamy, graham cracker, and milk chocolate. Inky smoke and tarry ropes. I can’t imagine someone not liking this.
Creamy milk chocolate smoke without a single flaw or imperfection. Perfect tar, marshmallow, s’mores, clean and elegant. Loads of flavour and abv is perfect. No flaws!
