    Lovely nose with mineral notes, either lemon or unripe lime, phenolic notes, medicinal notes, not much peat really, just really fresh. On the palate this stuff is pretty delicate, that said the peat hits and its very nice. Ashy, Caol Ila like ashy, honey, a bit of apricot or other yellow fruit shines through. In the end some salt hits. Finish is nice and ashy, turns into more traditional Ardbeg peat, salty, medium long and stays on the tongue. Really like it. Too bad its only a sample.

    Airigh Nam Beist 1990 is a delicious vintage bottling from the ongoing
    success story that is Ardbeg. Sadly now discontinued due to exhausted
    stocks, `the Beist` was an extremely popular Ardbeg, with assertive and
    powerful peatiness and a lovely honeyed edge. Oh, and it`s pronounced
    `Arry nam Baysht`.
