Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose is full of peat - notes of tar (which I always get from Ardbegs, though it is less pronounced here than the 10yo for example), grapefruit & seaweed
Salt & sour attack of fruitiness on the palate, some mild sweetness that becomes more savory and a buttery note in the background. Not particularly complex i.m.o
Finish is relatively long - smoky with some citrus, peat & malt. Dynamic, assertive and interesting.
Have to say that this one is all about the finish which is indeed exellent. I find the nose too young & the taste is a bit in your face. Some love it, I merely 'like' it.
It's 'fun' in the way your loudest buddy is, but it's nay subtle...
