Type: Single Malt
Region: Scotland – Islay
Strength: 54.2% alc/vol
Nose: Oloroso sherry, raisins and spicy stewed fruit cooked over a smouldering peat fire, then molasses and caramelised brown sugar that develops into Pedro Ximenez sherry. Eventually a touch of horse sweat and woodsmoke. This nose is so overpowering in its beauty, as the multitude of layers develop.
Palate: Sweet sherry, old oak and chocolate chilli that finishes with the sweetest tarry seaweed and iconic Ardbeg peat smoke that lingers….forever. Water adds oily butterscotch, caramel, citrus & peppery peat that leaves your palate gasping! Phenomenal!
