Distribution of ratings for this:
Body: thin legs, good body
Nose: immediately a strong whiff of peat; tar, strong alcohol, bonfire smoke, burnt rubber, sweet notes after a while.
Palate: stunning from the very beginning! Salty, smoky, sweet vanilla mixed with peat and seaweed, again tar and rubber. This is awesome! I've never thought about roasting some seafood plunged in vanilla on a grill, but this is the nearest thing that comes into my mind! One of the best palates I've ever tasted, this beats Uigeadail IMHO.
Finish: dragon-like finish! I'm breathing out smoke and surely I have liquid fire in my mouth! I'm not going to brush my teeth tonight, I'm sure I will wake up with a peaty breath tomorrow!
Overall: superbe whisky, worth every single cent! Kudos to Ardbeg!
P.S. I didn't dare to add water to this dram!
