    Ardbeg Grooves is poured as the dessert dram, though I’m more than happy without it after those three beauties. Hey ho! Cask grooves were formed after heavily charring red wine barrels, hence the name.

    N: Looking for meatiness, pickled onions, light fruity peat smoke, barley and saltiness? - roll right up.
    T: A mushy malty salty chew, the cask charring more prominent than the vegetal peatiness. Add water for a seaweed appearance early on.
    F: A dryer lighter smoky style compared to the previous three, but where’s the 'beef’/body?
    C: The nose appears faithful to the house style but the finish is indicative of a contemporary young hollow smoky style. I wasn’t bothered about finishing a dram.
