Nose

Très médicinal... mercurochrome, spray antiseptique. Beaucoup de terre et de tourbe.  Un peu de "vieux bois" et du poivre. Très peu sucré, peut-être une pointe fruitée (banane, poire?). C'est assez austère et brutal. Un ardbeg "primitif" hardcore!

Taste

Texture grasse. Bouche très sucrée, très douce, en assez grand contraste  avec le nez. Du bois, des tonnes de terre et de tourbe, c'est très bien fait, bien que peu complexe. Plus crémeux avec de l'eau. Alcool également un peu mieux intégré.

Finish

Très longue, sur la tourbe, le bois et encore ces chariots de terre.
Puis arrivent les cendres et le poivre qui demeurent plusieurs minutes. 

Comments

Un whisky plutôt austère au nez, puissant et peu complexe, mais très bien fait. Moins fin que le Uigeadail toutefois.

Nose

First spicy, followed by orange and other exotic fruits and it continues to evolve ( lemon, grapefruit ), over time which is always a good sign. Sweet peat smoke, walnuts and wet wool, but also hints of grass, toasted bread, roasted nuts and spicy notes of pepper and ginger. 

Taste

The taste is lush and rich and definitely more compelling than most standard Ardbegs. A sweetness in the form of exotic fruits such as peaches and passion fruit tastes through, in addition to a generous portion of peat and coal, but also dry and crisp, with peat and wine notes in a wonderful balance that develops over spices, pepper, coal smoke, more lemon, licorice, phenols, peach evoke leave, some cocoa and a touch of mint. 

Finish

long with peat and peppers hanging long, well balanced with a return hint of citrus.
