Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/09/2012

Appearance

Clear, mid golden with burnished gold highlights.

Aroma

Coal tar sooty nose with Ardbeg’s signature medicinal salty, smoky peat. Behind this, struggling for attention the marsala wine shows itself with a vanilla fruityness. Subtle aromas of ginger wine and coconut.

Taste

Brawny with smoky sooty peat, sweet liquorice, smoky bacon, soy sauce, burnt fruitcake and sweet vanillins.

Aftertaste

Coal Tar and lingering vanilla, damp woodiness and faint iodine.
