Vanilla fudge, soft peat, wonderful balance. It's not the freshest or most beautifully aromatic 70's Ardbeg I've had, but it's still great stuff, obviously.
Very layered, wave after wave of ripe fruits and peat, with sea salt and maritime notes predominating after a quick while. Lemon herbal liqueur. Vanilla cream. Quite fudgey, with a very oily texture. This is so balanced, it doesn't even feel 50% ABV. Delicious.
A bit underwhelming, to be honest, for a whisky with such provenance. While lovely, it doesn't awe me.
