This is a 1990 vintage limited edition from Ardbeg. There were three releases 2006, 2007 and 2008. Mine is 2008, so 18 years old.

Nose: Typical peat from Ardbeg, but with something special. Vanilla ice cream. It is peated vanilla ice cream. Strange, but interesting. There is a bit of citrus on the background also

Mouth: Typical Ardbeg peat with campfire smoke. The vanilla ice cream is still there, which makes it very good. It is different from all the other Ardbegs I have tried. It is like a Ardbeg that has been made for women but men has the right to like it also.

Finale: Very long, it is 18 years old after all. The campfire smoke stays in the mouth for a half eternity.

The whisky is very good. It is a peated Ardbeg like always but with a feminine touch that makes it very unique. I drop a tear each time a take a dram and sees the bottle go down as it is sold out everywhere !!! I should have bought a case.
