    I am not able to taste this one... because of its price... but I'm open to any sample as a gift from a generous new friend :-)

    Color: copper to rusty red
    Nose: Peaty phenols and medicinal aromas rise in the glass. Tar, coal, lead, iodine, ether, the smell of sports bandages provided with a peppery spicy hint of ham. In addition, fruity sherry flavors, lots of caramel, humidor and tobacco leaves of the highest quality.
    Oh my God!!! Sweet aromas of Turkish honey, figs, dates and mild BBQ sauces. Now back tobacco, peat and phenols integrated in best sherry and farmy notes. The complete range smoky underlaid. That does not exist - not a combination of flavors from this world!
    Taste: Filigree mouthfeel with strong peat content and sweet sherry. Orange liqueur, orange peel, ham, BBQ, beach campfire, flaked wood, tar, pencil leads and metallic notes. The taste notes all appear in a time sequence of four to five seconds. Absolute madness!
    Finish: Super long with countless phenols, powerful peat, medical hospital character and accompanying fruitiness. Herber herbal tea, ingeniously integrated, heavy wood notes and Turkish mocha (95 points). Minutes later, builds up an inexpressible mouthfeel that earns 98 points.
    Remark: Once again - that's not whisky from this world. Not to imagine, if the start of the flavor would have been creamy and fat now. Definitely the best Ardbeg and to date our new number one. Until now! Although we are both quite sure that it will be impossible to find a whisky that has a better nose, we only "give" the 99 points. Many, many thanks to our friend Carlos Han for this sample.
    97 points (nose: 99 / taste: 97 / finish: 96)

    Peat smoke and Fruity Chocolate cake mingling so well~ And the Cake straight in your face! What a punchy mouthfeel!
    A perfect combination of an old style Ardbeg! I love it so much!
