I have to say that this was not my first Islay malt but was my first Ardbeg. I can still remember the nose on this dram. It was a lemony, peaty, vanilla, with an espresso boldness that I can still taste today. From the first nosing this dram had a majesty about it that needed no pre-description. If you love the Islay malts you'll remember the one that got you hooked. This was mine. I could nose this whiskey for hours. The scents of the sea, that fishy/salty smoke, with a peppery-citrus tang and soft vanilla undertone. I cannot think of another Ten year old malt with such depth and diversity. Slainte Mhath!
