After reading so many reviews, about how good this whisky is, I had to try it for myself. Upon opening the bottle strong smell of peat smacks my face and my wife's, who is 15ft away from me. She thought I brought in our Medicine box/container, which actually smells just like my Ardbeg 10. On the palate it is not as heavily peated as the nose would suggest. It is quiet nice,,, hints of orange peel, citrus notes, hint of toffee, and some kind of sweetness in the end. and of course loads of peat and smoke, iodine....

Overall I really enjoy this whisky. I guess my journey to Islay whisky started on the right foot. I also have an un-opend bottle of Uigeadail that im dying to try out

I think you hit the nail with this review. I have a glass of Ardbeg In hand as I type. I also think there is a zingy champagne fizzy quality to the finish.

It was really interesting having this along side a dram of Laphroaig 10, because the Ardbeg has loads of smoke on the nose while the Laph has only a slight hint.. but then you take a sip and the Laph is all campfire and the Ardbeg's peat is almost on the backburner. No pun intended.

Peat definitely mellowed out as it got down to only about a couple of drams left. But the overall character of the whisky is the same.. Still have that long finish i come to love!!
