    You walk along the sea on Isle of Islay and smell the salty air in combination with the washed up kelp. You walk with your boots on the kelp leaves and they crack like poppy peas. You just can't escape the smells. You're lucky to take a bite of a lemon and smell the spice jars you brought to the beach. Delicious that combination, you say out loud. Then you also take a bite of a strawberry sprinkled with pepper and walk on with a smile.

      Salty liquorice, bay leaf, pepper, kelp !, the salty sea, lemongrass and green sour apples. Strawberries with peat, nice combination.
    • Taste

      It starts very soft, then the flavors emerge. Salty, salty and some peat, four seasons of pepper, kelp and even a light sweetness like vanilla and strawberry. It is a very soft Ardbeg, many times softer than the 10 year old brother. I don't think it's very profound, but certainly not dirty.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Pepper, strawberries, vanilla and then salt. Lightly roasted and peat. green grape and red sweet apples linger.
