Tasted: Mar 2012
A pungent, Ardbeggy peated and heavy wood notes kind of nose. Very complex for such a young spirit with a seam of rich Apricot fruit and layers of bog myrtle-peat, salt and sweet, gristy barley.
The palate opens with the sweet, gristy barley followed by light coffee, vanilla and gently oiled peat followed by hints of fish and brine. Very full with the Oloroso finish adding just the right amount of sherry wood to intrigue and add gloss to some beautiful tropical fruit, spice and herbal moments. Lovely length with a faultless bitter/ sweet balanced finish and a long, dry peat after taste. Again compares favourably with Ardbeg in style.
