    Pretty gentle Ardbeg, not too smokey, enough space for some fruity and sweet elements. Pleasant drink
    • Nose

      Peat and smoke at first, some rubber as well. Herbal influences too, and fruity: Apples and some tropical fruits.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Slightly peppery, but pretty gentle and smooth as well. Peat and smoke, and a little sweetness, honey. Licorice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still some little pepper, licorice, smoke an peat, pretty long finish. The fruits come back in again.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful Ardbeg. No high flyer, but the peat nose is satisfied.
    • Nose
      Clear, clear, massive peat note, very herbaceous, burnt greens, but also slightly sweetish, fruity, fermented apples.
    • Taste
      rather soft, but not tame, surprisingly herbaceous the peat, still very massive, slightly burnt plastic, a slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      Peaty, smoky, tart, a little citrus.
