— My favourite Ardbeg confection. When you've had a hard and confounding day, and think you need something simple and sweet to relax you, this is what you should have instead. It's complexity will force you to forget your worries that day as you engage in the awesome task of trying to figure out what those delightful flavours represent.

— Incredible

— My favorite Islay scotch. I always keep a bottle in my bar.

Excellent. Smells like Indiana Jones and tastes like pure victory.

Alon,
Excellent Ardbeg. To me it's quite similar to the An Oa - maybe a little peatier. Wonderful aftertaste with a fantastic bloom. Overall an outstanding Islay scotch that hits all the right notes.

Miguel,
I prefer the Uigeadail, but man o mna tthis is a close 2nd, the peat, the smoke, the light medicinal hint and that spicey undertone. Definitely going to keep this stocked for the peat lovers.

Harder than AN OA or TEN. Too hard for me as casual drink. For late evening, next to fireplace, after drinking some AN OA as starter...

Colin,
One of the finest whiskies ever made. Not quite a 'Lord of the Isles' but a good trier. P.S. The spelling of Whisky is important to the Scots. In "About".

Tastes like a leather shoe that's been used to stomp out a fire. Decent on the finish though, reminds me of the first breath of fresh air in the morning at camp.

guest,
it is definitely one of the finest whiskeys I’ve tasted so far, glorious & complex smell, robust taste, flavours of charred wood, leather, musk, fine peat, saltiness, seaside, storm and thunders; a walk in a dark pine forest surrounded by the ocean’s waves

Nice and smooth finish with a great peaty taste throughout.
 
Peter
Peter,
Tastes exactly as advertised - salted caramel upfront with a spicy peaty finish which is refined and very intense. For any occasion around a fire, this whiskey is so full of flavors it lingers long after each sip! Small tip: This one opened up nicely with a bit of ice which I don’t typically do...

It is lovely & party, leaves a nice after taste in the mouth, has quite a bite on your first sip but a beautiful malt.

Daniel,
The nose on this beast is very deceptive. Light smoke and peat with some light floral notes. That's it. But in the mouth: Peat Bomb! Heat from the ABV but not overpowering; Smoke and ash with a honey sweetness that balances out the smoke almost perfectly. The finish lasts forever with more smoke, turning into BBQ meats. An incredible dram.

Iain,
Still my favourite Islay. It is just so much taste. Yeah it is bold and smoky and a bit crazy. But that is what makes it so wonderful.

Couldn't taste beyond the harsh smoke. Nothing slight about it.

Sublime. Charred wood, dark chocolate and all that is good in a long walk through a dark pine forest.

Excellent Ardbeg. Complex, less peaty than the standard 10y old, but very much Ardbeg nevertheless. Could have this every day!
