Tasting Notes

Nose

Dried fruit, rum butter and mixed peel. An occasional waft of struck flint, morphs into a clearer smokiness. Mint toffee, lint bandages and citrus.

Palate

Sultanas, wood smoke, apple, ship rope and Christmas pudding spice.

Finish

Smokiness and dry rope.

Comment

Took a while to show its true colours as an Ardbeg, but developed into a good example.
