Tasting Notes:
Tasting notes by Serge Valentin of

Colour: dark straw.

Nose: very smoky and maritime, with no ‘sweetness’ whatsoever. Seaweed, oysters, sea air… Now, this is really ‘a walk on the beach’! Some great notes of fresh walnut skin, Jura vin jaune, fino sherry… Hints of Virginia tobacco, leather, apple juice, camphor. So complex, yet bold and rich! A fantastic Ardbeg!

Mouth: very punchy, very peaty, very compact, very satisfying… Astonishingly impressive. It has just everything, no need to list all flavours.

That means 95 points, no less.
