    An ingenious and not only smoky Ardbeg with age ... Simply delicious

      Very summery, full and with unusually intense fruitiness, beautifully round and balanced, the aromas vary almost every time a little smell, mainly light grapes, subtle smoke and a summer meadow-like spice. hot!

      The dominance also lies here with fruity notes, which are sometimes exotic, sometimes vanilla or after a few seconds also banana. Really exciting and intense

      Here comes the sweetness of the ard, which I almost missed a bit. It plays around the delicate spice of the wood and integrates great.
      For me an absolute top Ardbeg.

    Ohhhhh it's good. A delicious and very balanced combination of fruits and the unmistakable Islay profile. The latter plays the smaller part here. In an Ardbeg of all places, I would probably have been skeptical if someone had told me beforehand. After trying it I have to say: I would like that more often. The original price (€ 179) was okay for an Ardbeg of this age (oh, I wouldn't have thought I would write something like that).

    Very nice, sweetish Islay nose. I like it very much. Pleasantly cool and sweet in the mouth, light acidity. Rather mild and medium-long in the finish for 53.2%.
