Nose
Classic Islay peatiness. Spicy. Fragrant. Sea air.
Palate
Dusty. Earthy. Iron-ish. The flavours of a dunnage warehouse.
Finish
Sea spray. Wet earth. Seaweed.
Comment
Less boisterous than The Young One. The calm of maturity permits all the nuances to be experienced.

Dave Broom

85
Nose
Fragrant and smoked. Coal bunkers and rose bushes. Perfumed wood, apple loft, peat smoke in background, antiseptic, coal tar.
Palate
Dry, firm. Sweet oak and a burst of smoke. Timbers on a beach. Marine notes. Seashells. Great flowing feel.
Finish
Mixing sweet and dry.
Comment
A classic Ardbeg.
