Tasting Notes from the Producer
Nose: Rounded and subtly smoky (applewood), with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. A curious suggestion of juicy fruits, such as peach and banana. With a drop of water, reminders of Ardbeg’s classic fragrance: lime, pine resin, fennel, saddle soap and tar. A gentle waxiness, like fragrant candlewax, and hints of smoked herbs.
Palate: A smooth, creamy texture leads into a huge syrupy sweetness, flavours of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices (nutmeg and cinnamon), some cigar smoke, and a very unusual flavour of grilled artichokes. Long and sweet, with floral overtones, mint toffee and some gentle malty, biscuit notes.
Finish: Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense, with flavours of aniseed, hickory and distant subtle smoke.

My goodness!!!!! I have only just sampled this (and purchased a bottle) at the midlands whisky festival in Birmingham....Ardbeg have created an absolute gem here. The creamy, chocolatey, citrus, tobacco and menthol and cereal (to name a few) notes beautifully hugged with peat smoke is so moorish!!! A must have to any whisky lovers collection.
