15yo 1973/1988 (53.4%, Sestante, clear
glass yellow/green label)
Cololur: straw. Nose: a little more
discreet at first nosing, probably
smoother and sweeter. It smells a
little clumsy after the fab Intertrade.
Lots of apple juice, sugared smoked
tea, spearmint and cold camomile tea.
Also rather grainy, on porridge, cereals…
Little peat here, at least when compared
to the Intertrade. Not very ‘Ardbeg’,
strangely, like if it was a finish
(chenin?) Mouth: sweeter but very
great as well. Maybe a tad more on
vanilla, fruitier, more on apple skins
and walnuts, waxier, maybe a tad greener
but what a great one again. Not quite
as perfect as the Intertrade, though.
