Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Intense and vibrant. Lime zest, green grass, smoked fish and peat fires. Quite dry.
Palate: Initially seems like an explosion in the peat shed, but has great balance: sweet centred, malt, citrus. Fresh and exciting.
Finish: Oatcakes and smoke. Long.
Comment: A swaggering young dude.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Deceptively restrained.
Palate: Spicy. Saffron. Garden mint. Lemon juice. Tea.
Finish: Smoky.
Comment: I like young Islays, but this hyperactive whisky is just too frisky. The flavours need time to meld. Even with those shortcomings, it is an Ardbeg...
