Tasting Notes by GT2
App- Deeper bright gold for Ardbeg. Thick, rambunctious legs.
Nose- Out of this world no pun intended. Sharp mango and moldy white grapefruit are unseen before in this style. Very sharp chamomile as always with vanilla bean ice cream, cinnamon and clove, starfruit and kumquat.
Taste- Rich and oily with nectar fruit acid. Mango and grapefruit sweetness blend with vanilla bean dessert and baked apple pie.
Palate- Mildly hot with rich oil, bitter tea herbs, vanilla bean husk.
One of the brightest and certainly the most fruity Ardbeg. Very easy to enjoy. Easy shoe-in for my favorite Scotch so far.
