Ardbeg 18 Years Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Wood-fired barbecues with smouldering limes and chilli-rubbed bacon on the grates. The limey notes build, backed by seaspray saltiness. Fruity touches follow: grilled apples and pears, hints of lychee and singed Seville orange.
Palate: A hit of sweet smoke is followed by a scuttle of coal dust and wood ash. The peat smoke becomes medicinal, with mint and menthol on top of gentle TCP and freshly unwrapped bandages. Tarry touches hide at the back, along with some of the meatiness from the nose.
Finish: Charcoal and burning lime peel linger.

Had quite a few Ardbegs in my time, this one is exceptional. Bravo!
