Ardbeg 10 Year Old bottled 2000s

My love affair with peated whisky began with my first introduction to peat. I wasn't on the fence, I was absorbed. Ardbeg - it's all your fault.

I just want to nose this all night. This is crisp and clean.

Nose: Phenolic peat, dark chocolate, lemon, vanilla, malt, salt, limestone

Taste: Brine, lemon, lime, sardines, green pears

Finish: Peat, campfire smoke, tar, the finish is long and fades gently

This 46% is smoother than many a 40%. I really love this whisky and hope that the distiller can maintain the quality.

Batch: L12 047 07:37 6ML

p.s. the title, this whisky fondly reminds me of my childhood at my grandparents house. Immigrants from the UK who had an old gas heater for the cold winters. The smell just takes me back.

I continue to be interested in the effects of "bottle again." Obviously, three years isn't enough to have much of an effect . . . or is it? Some of those grand old Glen Grants of yester-decade come to mind.

Actually I hope it has no effect and remains in a state of stasis. Otherwise the peaty edge may taper off.
