Nose: Big salty peat chased by twirling vanilla and espresso. Hot on the heels are oranges and lemons with leather and malty cereal notes bringing up the rear.
Palate: A dazzling flavour of acacia honey on peat smoked oatcakes with slices of lemon and orange placed on top.
Finish: On the finish we have classic Ardbeg: sea salted caramel, tidal waves of smoke and black coffee.
Overall: This Ardbeg delivers what’s expected alongside honeyed sweetness, citrus vitality and earthy coffee.
