    Ardbeg 10y 1996/2006, 50%, DL OMC, 331 bottles - Islay - 82/100
    A very light nose for an Ardbeg. Light yet complex. Grain, herbs, little sweet, smoke and only a slight hint of peat. Then also fruit. Citrus. Peat is slowly coming up more certainly. Taste is less complex, rather dry and slightly sweet with clear peat. Dry, slightly bitter aftertaste. http://onversneden.com/2008/11/23/enkele-peaty-douglas-laings/
