This is one of the first single malts i have ever tasted. I love all ardbegs, creamy and oily with a straw like color and a taste of the ocean.
Nose: some smoke, some burnt wood, rubber notes- reminds me of band aids on the nose! a little hint of pear and apple. faint notes of pineapple too. i could smell the ocean on this one.
Palate: salty, smoke turkey bacon with a medicinal character i cannot fully describe but very enjoyable. yummy clams and oyster's I"m getting hungry here. oh yeah tar and pencil like flavors.
Finish: Very long and dry, mouth coating. it leaves a long lasting tingle in the mouth, even a sip of lager beer could not flush away this big islay malt. it hangs in there long and strong! lovely.
