  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Medium peated at Glen Scotia means 23ppm, like a Bowmore.
    Though the peat is hidden by a lucious ruby port that turns it almost into a desert to be rounded by slight iodine/bandages notes.
    It was the star at a blind tasting and I am sure the dram will improve with more time in the open bottle and release more complexity.
    At under 70 Eu absolutely worth a buy if you like sweet port maturations.
