Ardbeg is first and foremost one of the classic, peat-laden single malts in the smoky, Islay style. But it is also one of the sweetest, so you get an interesting combination of smoke, fruit, peat, and honey vanilla.
And since the distillery sits right on the coast (seriously, any close and it would have to float), you definitely get hints of sea salt and lime. It's not a "peat monster" test of manhood kind of Whisky, but it has full-throated flavor to spare. The 10 YO single malt is the cornerstone of the Ardbeg range, while a good portion of their Spirit is still currently used in blends.
