Ardbeg 10y 1996/2006, 50%, DL OMC, 331 bottles – Islay – 82/100
Voor een Ardbeg een erg lichte neus. Licht maar toch complex. Graan, kruiden, beetje zoet, rook en maar een lichte hint van turf. Daarna ook fruit. Citrus. Turf komt langzaam meer zeker naar boven. Smaak is minder complex, eerder droog en beetje zoet met duidelijke turf. Droge, ietwat bittere afdronk.
