  5. WhiskyNerdAu scored this whisky 82 points Newbie

    Region: Islay, Scotland
    Abv: 46.2%
    Colour: Pale gold, reminiscent of a Chardonnay.
    Rating: 8.2/10

    Nose: Typically peaty for an @ardbeg whisky. However, with some time in the glass the nose will open up with a hint of vanilla and dried apricot.

    Palate: With some perseverance against a high wall of smoke and ash characteristic of this Islay distillery, a sweet powdered sugar candy akin to sherbet. Delightfully complex, likely owing to the higher-end age statement and the variety of (oloroso and bourbon) maturation the spirit has experienced.

    Finish: Lingers and dissipates into a liquorice and black pepper.

    Note: A tremendous dram for anyone who has enjoyed their Islay experiences with core-range releases to date and is keen to expand their horizons by reaching a little higher on the shelf.
