This was the second dram for our Ardbog Day 2013 celebration. We paired it with steak and eggs (a poached egg split over rare filet mignon).

Color: reddish gold

Nose: It always seems somewhat closed to me initially, time and persistence pay off though, salt spray, hay bales, hint of lime, peat smoke, earth, rubber, pencil eraser (the pink one), smoked almonds, some evergreen and honeysuckle. A little splash of water brings the limes and floral notes forward some.

Palate: full bodied and oily, sweet and hot, big peat, salt again, pepper, citrus, tarry smoke, charred green onion, evergreen, faint molasses, then becoming dry and prickly

Finish: long sweet smoke and chili heat

Overall: A salty, brooding dram, I have revisited it multiple times and appreciate it more each time. Good stuff.

Food note: worked splendidly with the steak and eggs. Note that the tasting note is before consuming any food (I think context is a huge factor with whisky tasting).
