A rather rare release from Ardbeg, this 1978 vintage represents single malt from the prodigious Ileach distillery at its most balanced and poised. Superb.
Nose: Full, slightly herbal. Notes of brine and peat smoke, espresso beans, fresh lime and cedar wood. Vanilla spice and a little toasty oak.
Palate: Beautifully balanced herbal notes. Coffee beans. Cut hay, full-bodied. Woody.
Finish: Long, becomes very spicy and oaked.

Superb nose and smooth finish. Not too overwhelming on the palate. Definitely not for beginners.

Somewhere between the nose and the palate, I journeyed to the peat fields of Campbeltown in the early 1800s throttling the nectar of Springbank. A local sheep provided deeply profound theosophical arguments and just as I achieved perfect synchronicity with the universe and an enlightened state of Kairos, all faded to the piquant finish of pungent rotting leaves smoking over a dull, dank fire, burning my soul with the aftertaste of overcooked Mutton. And the last Ferry to Islay had already departed. Oh dear.
