Clear, golden amber.
Tar, coal dust, sea spray and creamy custard with pine resin, honey and dark chocolate. More woody with water.
Sherry, pineapple and creamy vanilla with milk chocolate, peat smoke and assertive spice. Loses some of its honeyed sweetness and creaminess with water – better neat.
Long lingering peat smoke creosote and tar.
A rumbustious malt with tar, coal dust, peat smoke and creosote – as you’d expect of Ardbeg, but tamed with honey, pineapple, chocolate and creamy custard.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
