    A bit less extreme and more subtle than the 9yo as expected, a beautiful liquid.

    This one belongs to the top of the Ardbegs - very rich, balanced and complex. It has everything but doesn't go to any extreme. This is real balance.
    • Nose
      Sweet smoky and peaty, old books, citrusy and lemony notes, more on tropical fruits, fresh, rich and complex
    • Taste
      Ahh, yeahh, finest peat and smoke in best Ardbeg style. It's actually not too sweet, rather herbal and austere. Water is recommended which makes much smoother and more waxy. Citrus and lemony notes again.
    • Finish
      Long and hot, it keeps the intensive aromas alive for a while. A subtle sweetness follows after.
