My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Pineapple, green apples, nuts, just a whiff of fresh, smoky sea air.
Palate: Very gentle peat, mixed fresh fruits, vanilla, caramel, very mild spices.
Finish: Long and fruity.
Overall: This legendary bottling is now traded at very high prices. Don’t excpect anything like the modern peat bombs Ardbeg currently offers. A very nice dram, light, fruity and fresh, but definitely not worth today’s prices.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
