LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise, and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit (black raspberry, black cherry, plum), dark chocolate, espresso, molasses, bacon fat, kalamata olive, and warming cinnamon on the finish. Quite stunning! Score - 96 (John Hansell, whiskyadvocate.com, Vol. 18, #3) Price $ 187.95
