Michael Jackson

Nose
Fragrant. Sea air. Distant smoke.
Palate
More fruitiness than any other Ardbeg. Candied orange peel and cherries. Walnuts, almonds. Marzipan. Bittersweet. Spicy. The roundness of flavours masks the peat.
Finish
Long, haughty. Steely.
Comment
Becomes more complex with age. I admire its style, but hanker for the bravado of the younger Ardbegs.

Dave Broom

Nose
Phenolic: sooty smoke, beach bonfire, creosote, ozone, brine but with some sweet, biscuity malt. Complex.
Palate
Quite dry, but enough oiliness and sweet fruit to balance the sootiness. Good balance.
Finish
Long, firm.
Comment
All of Ardbeg's uncompromising directness with extra complexity.
