Tasting Notes
Keith WoodBrief Tasting Note: My initial impression was one of a rather wild, or raw, whisky. I say this not as a complaint, but as a description of how fiery this obviously young Ardbeg is. It exhibits lots of peat on both nose and palate and certainly announces its presence rather vociferously. I personally prefer my Ardbegs to gain a little more maturity from the casks, but this is certainly one to try if you get the chance.
