    A masterpiece. immediately fills your mouth with a powerful pleasant smoke, without any uncomfortable discrepancies. Also a whisky that won't leave you alone and keeps giving long after it's gone.

    Beautifully balanced from the first sip, transports me to Christmas no matter the time of year, full-bodied, fruity and oily, whilst remaining rich and approachable

    A very nice full bodied Ardbeg! Very beautifull integration of the sherry wood finish. Compared to the Corryvreckan, this one is without a doubt the better of the 2.
    • Nose
      Initialy it’s got the same candied driven smell with freshly baked cake. But after it opens up a little more it reveals beautifull subtle sherry notes, dried red fruits and ‘harder’ spices. It’s a complex nose. A lot going on inhere. With water it keeps having the thick full bodied experience and clear notes of a campfire come through.
    • Taste
      Again it’s Full bodied. A nice thick mouthfeel. Subtle sherry notes accompanied with beautifull hints of burning wood in a fireplace.
    • Finish
      Quite long actually. It gives vanilla, burnt wood and a buttery mouthfeel. The peat completes the finish and stays with you for quite a while.
