Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonBalanced peatyness, very clean, crisp and uncomplicated. Perhaps some light milk chocolate in there. And alcohol. Yes. Very tasty and clean peatyness. Some malt and milk chocolaty. Uncomplicated is the word.
Oliver KlimekColour: Diluted white wine - Nose: Smoked ham, vanilla, a hint of lemon. - Palate: Mild peat, vanilla, hints of nuts and citrus fruit, mild spices. - Finish: Long and smoky. - Overall: This lightly peated Ardbeg is not at all unpleasant, but yet it leaves you with a feeling that there is something missing in this dram.
