This Single Malt is distilled by Ardbeg in Islay.

Tasting notes:

Light, sweet vanilla then peat aromas on the nose. Luscious lemon peat mouthfeel. Fruity peat, sweet sea salt notes on the palate. Simple and certainly no "beastie". Citrus and peat notes on a medium finish.

    Honey, tar, vanilla, smoke, whiff of bacon, lemons and herbs on the nose. Soft sweet smoky mouthfeel. Smoky licorice, soft brine, smooth pine notes on the palate. Gentle vanilla and smoke on a medium finish. More "wee" than "beastie".

    Caramel, sweet peat, red fruit, mild camphor, brown sugar, lemons and oak on the nose. Sweet salty tar mouthfeel. Gentle, light peat, tar, citrus notes and a touch of sherry on the palate. Mild sweet peat on a medium finish. More "wee" than "beastie" for me.
