    Kevin,

    Update. Half way down the bottle, so a reasonable amount of oxidation of the compounds. Has improved considerably over the initial bottle opening dram. Give this expression time. Flavours deepen with additional ullage in the bottle. Smoked ham comes through. Smokiness is stronger than initially in fresh new bottle dram. Fruits more pear, Apple, than dried fruits. Personally, not picking mch dried fruit myself and I suspect perhaps a Fino variation. Tangy lemon, green olive and grape more than dried fruit to my palate. Colour could come from allowing the flor to die. I detect chalkiness and salt which could come from Amontilado. Conclusion, well I have increased my rating. A very imaginative and curious Ardbeg. I could be wrong about casks but I don't think this is Oloroso or PX unless the finish period has been a couple of hours lol. Very nice Ardbeg and adds to the variety in their expressions. Imaginative finish IMO.

    BEF,

    I drank this against 9 other Ardbegs several other top Islays in a very unusual context in Odessa, where for reasons I can't go in to there was a genuine concern that I was about to be in very serious trouble and possible physical danger. Stood out as the best of an excellent bunch and is certainly now my final supper whisky - if I ever find myself on death row this will definitely be my last round...

    Kevin,

    Thin coatline with small beads and legs run slowly reflecting low oil content and higher ABV. Colour slightly darker than 10 year old, suggesting a very short finish in a sherry cask, unless of course that was a Fino sherry and accompanying dryness which is present, but I suspect Oloroso. Nose - slighter smoke than usual, chocolate hit, ashy and some gunpowder,, slight dried fruits mainly raisin, slight hint of banana and pear reflecting isoamyl acetate. A licorice background. Slight inside of a teapot aroma. The feinty aromas are typical of the Kildaltons and not surprising given that 60% of the phenols are in the feints. Palate - salty, peat smoke is quite strong, chilli and pepper from 1st fill American Casks. A bit of a wolf in sheets clothing given the reduced Ardbeg smokiness in the nose. Finish - slightly smoke, slightly sweet, tannic, medium length Conclusion - is it worth the money? Not in comparison to other Ardbegs, but I have just opened the bottle and to be fair it will probably sharpen up considerably. I prefer the 10 year old over any of the other Ardbegs and Corryvreckan, Uigeadail and Dark Cove over this NAS. Still a nice enough peated whisky and more gentle than most others of the Kildalton strains.
