Oh my god, I am in whisky heaven! Woooowww, slurppp, schmatz, fantastic, mnjammnjammnjam !!!! This shall be Ardbeg??? Rich and complex, a beautiful high quality sherry monster at first nosing. Dark berries, plums, oloroso sherry, marble cake, chewing tobacco and juicy liquorice. Decent peat and smoke are a available after digging a little deeper into this whisky wonder of the world.
Plopp, has knocked my socks off! Here is what I call a perfect sherry wood matured Ardbeg. There is a rich peaty- and saltyness with Ramazotti, liquorice and cacao. Pleasantly dry and oily with decent notes of old wood.
Very long ... longer ... longest ... never ending.
Remains rich predominantly on aromas of 85% cacao dark chocolate.
