      Clasic Ardbeg, with sea air, citrus, a little vanilla, black coffee, salted caramel and smoke.

    This is the signature style of Ardbeg. Another fantastic bottle by TBWC.

    Ardbeg (51.9%, The Boutique-y Whisky Company, 293 bottles, 2012)
    A new NAS series by Master of Malt. Our friend Geert, the famous Ardbeg
    collector and Ostendian hotelier, is featured on the label. Colour:
    pale gold. Nose: it’s a very medicinal one at first nosing, without any
    excessive sweetness from some too active oak. So we’re rather between
    bandages and antiseptic, as well as a little hessian, before it gets
    more coastal. Sea breeze, touches of marzipan, kippers… A sweetness
    kicks in later on, with some vanilla and oranges, together with more oak
    (ginger, nutmeg) and more roundness. So a classic modern Ardbeg with
    good complexity so far. With water: the maritime part came to the front.
    Also a little eucalyptus, as often. Mouth: truly excellent, exactly
    midway between the raw tarry peat and the American wood’s sweet
    roundness. It’s also rather fruity (lemons and oranges), with also a
    good dose of maple syrup and sweet marzipan to coat the whole. Touches
    of salt+lemon, tequila-style. Maybe not. With water: a few earthy
    touches, some gentian… I like that. Finish: medium long, with the oak’s
    spices talking a little louder (as often cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg)
    and a little more lemon. Comments: excellent, it reminds me of a recent
    official but I just cannot remember which one, apologies. SGP:478 - 88 points.

    That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottles Scotch Single Malt Whiskies from a
    variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish comic
    book-style labels.

    This Label features Geert Bero.perhaps the worlds
    most famous Ardbeg Collector and proprietor of the world-famous Ardbeg bar at
    Hotel Bero. looking more than a little like Gollum from Lord of the Rings.
    Whats he reaching for though? Its the Ardbeg Spirit Purifier the device that
    holds the power to create the delicious whisky he craves. #Precious#.
