Restrained smoky, here pleasant fruit notes that play in the direction of orange and apricot, as well as mild spice notes swing the scepter. Very inviting. Next to it, fresh leather, dried wild herbs, lemon water in the distance. Peat smoke becomes more noticeable over time, it sneaks up from behind.
Oily, full, mouth-filling approach. The feeling quickly arises that it was filled with exactly the right alcohol strength, so exciting and balanced at the same time it presents itself on the tongue.
Initially only mildly smoky as in the nose, which suits him very well. Orange jam, lemons.
Milk chocolate, toffee, nougat, marzipan, creme brulee - chocolate and warm flavors dominate "in the middle". Always close and together, nothing fraying or fraying here.
Medium to long finish, now increasingly dry and smoky. Finally, let the "Ardbeg" hang out with rich peat smoke, lemon jelly and warm tar.
