    A creamy yet light expression, with citrus, honey and a long, salty finish.

    Ardbeg 1990/2004 'Cask Strength', 55%, OB for Japan, 1200 bottles I did not know, but I'm happy with the acquaintance. This can easily stand next to the Airigh Nam Beist , on all levels - has a similar profile. 90/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/01/20/bezoekje-aan-bb/
