General description

Not as great as I had hoped. Had it side by side with Port Askaig 8 year. Port Askaig 8 year was better with N,P, and F. I'm a pretty big ardbeg fanboy too.

Finish strength: Short
Color: Old gold

General description

First whiff is sweet, pear, and a little alcoholic, which disappears quickly.
Pepper and coal straight away, hiding sharpness.
Earthy finish.

Color: Deep gold

General description

On the nose: young and smokey.
On the taste: first black pepper and then the smoke hits the palate. When the smoke fades away dark chocolade, hints of vanilla and tar/ash come through. Quite oily as well.
Aftertaste is a little salty and long.
The taste is better then you expect after you nosed it. Nice dram but next time a pay a little more and get the 10yo
