Firstly I have to start this review with two thank you's. The first is to Ardbeg for making these annual releases. Whilst very hard to get hold of, they are exciting and worth trying if you get a chance. The second thank you is to 26goingon62 for allowing me to try his bottle of Ardbog. Having been unable to get my own he kindly let me sample his with a drop swap. Cheers mate!
The nose is big, Salty, peaty vegetation, plums, fudge, smokey bacon crisps and bonfires.
This is BIG. It tastes salty, almost like brine lots of Peat smoke, big punch, spicy aftertaste that coats the mouth. Finish is warm and peppery.
I love it, this is right up my street. It doesn't have the layered complexity of Uigeadial but as a one off it scores well.
