Nose: Pineapple slices and desiccated coconut rocket out of the glass followed by toffee and spice, finally there is a big phenolic launch-pad of peat.
Palate: When the Ardbeg smoke clears the first step is salty, before cream and dried apricots land.
Finish: The finish is soft and sweet, with earthy smoke swirling about.
Overall: This is a fairly sweet Ardbeg and at 49%abv not there strongest offering, however it is as smoky and complex as you could want it. An inter-stellar Ardbeg indeed.
