    F: Dominates smoke, chemical and smoked threads, bacon, lemon and lime, salt, malt sweetness.
    B: Smart drink, a direct competitor of Layfroyga 10 for me, but Ardbegu will give up the palm.

    C: Straw yellow.

    N: A lot of “delicate stuffs” like peat, dried seaweeds, brackish, coal, burned tire, then dried fruits, apple peel, lime, then smoked fish, green wood and then again a peat smell, dried fruits and almonds.

    P: Dried saeweeds, salt, ash, and peat with the addiction of tobacco and dried fruits that put to the test the strongest palates, yellow fruits, mellow apple, kiwi, and then again peat and smoked fish, maybe a bit mineral.

    F: Long and persistent is the final, salty mouth then tobacco, peat, ashes, smoked fish and liquorice.

     

    We really appreciated that, not too pungent and intrusive as into the NAS Ardbeg               ( annual release ) and the sensory mixture is rude and fascinating at the same time.
