A great Ardbeg but not as weighty as you'd expect. This is a very refined dram, perhaps too refined for a 25 yo Ardbeg. I have to say I was a little disappointed. The Rollercoaster offers more punch and some of the private bottelings around this age offer more smooth-old-age-Ardbeg that you would expect. I would say, in short, a great dram but at a quarter the price.
