Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Complex and strangely delicate. Seashore aromas but also fruit. Tangerine, marmalade, cream.
Palate: Complex and mouth filling. A lovely soft start with that elegant fruit. The smoke builds in power as it moves through the mouth, drying as it goes.
Finish: Immense. Incredibly long. You'll taste it the next day.
Comment: A stunner.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: As it warms, bonfires on the beach. Boats caulked with pitch. The tar-like Ardbeg trademark
Palate: Light-bodied but oily. Clings to the tongue. Lemony sweetness. Barbecue wood.
Finish: Clean coal-tar. Warming. Lingering.
Comment: Cleaner, more lemony and oily, and less assertive, than the 24 Years Old duty free edition.
