    Light straw
    Round, creamy and harmonious with leather, wet charcoal, slightly diluted peat and a mild spiciness. In addition, really fruity lime, grapefruit, a little honey and a good portion of vanilla make the nose a very pleasant combination. Overall, a bit thin, but without a false sound.
    Soft start and then quickly spicy building up and becoming more powerful. Pepper, peat, smoke, salt, coal, wet ash, tar and only a little fruit character here. But with a freshness that comes from the wood. Vanilla, a fine minerality, smoke and liquid honey complete the taste.
    Medium long - getting drier. The smoky wood comes through more and more and tart notes take over the scepter. Maritime smoky and peaty and spicy finish.
    We vary between 88 and 89 points!

  8. Islaysmoke scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is distributed throughout the room as soon as you open it and pour it for the first time. A great addition to the Ardbeg Range. Unfortunately not always available.
    • Nose
      Same ashy scent of fresh sweet fruits. Pineapple. Toffee.
    • Taste
      Gently. Smoke, full depth. A little oily impression. Ash, salt, sweet and sour flavors. Oak wood. Spicy chocolate notes.
    • Finish
      Smoky wood that stays for a long time.
