Nose
The merest whiff of acetone before the smoke enters hand in hand with black liquorice. Sun-warmed stones covered with wet seaweed and a note of cocoa butter and an almost floral lift.
Palate
Clean and sweeter than you'd expect from the way that the smoke floods the whole mouth. Then a heathery lift introduces some creamy sweet spices.
Finish
Cracked black pepper.
Comment
Everything here has been reduced to elemental levels. A nice circle completed.

Nose
Extremely Ardbegy! Smoky and sooty. Briny. Vanilla discreetly swirls through. A hint of creosote then a citrussy note.
Palate
Surprisingly sweet at first but a huge spicy whiff dances on the tongue. Multilayered. Cereal bowl,barley sugar, lemon juice… Big.
Finish
Teasing,sherbety with a sweet lemonade touch.
Comment
A big lad. I was right. Ardbeg Renaissance.Unmistakable, uncompromising. Excellent.
