    I did enjoy this one, though it’s hard to say how successful the cask experiment was. It certainly wasn’t bad, but it’s tough to say how much impact it had as anything I picked up I already find in Ardbeg, or could see myself finding it there with more traditional casks. Doesn’t stop it from being a solid bottle, though.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Light, salty, seaweed, wood, some smoke.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Smoky, briny, fruity, almond – overall light, but in equal measure.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Smoke, wood, toffee.
