Product Details

Appearance: Pinot Gris. Nose: The nose is incredibly earthy with the likes of mushroom and damp soil. Add in the peat reek, and it's reminiscent of an extinguished campfire. On a different note, the dram is quite fruity. I get bright satsuma peel and tangelo segment. Underlying the whisky to bring everything together is the faint sweetness of honeycomb.Palate: The mouthfeel is light but overwhelmingly hot. There is no sweetness to it except for maybe a kiss of honey. There is the faint mist of salt air, or sea spray. Mainly, the Ardbeg is all smoke and soot with umami or mushroom. The bright fruit on the nose hides away behind the peat; it's just not there on the palate. Rose hips with a little eucalyptus add a floral or tea-like taste. Overall, the only way to describe the taste is the smell of burnt rubber on asphalt. Adding water makes this more enjoyable than straight. Summary: The Arbeg 19-Year-Old Traigh Bhan (Batch 2) has a wonderful nose on it. You pick up on the complexities and subtleties. The palate though just was not giving me the nuances I desired that I can usually taste in other Ardbegs. I'm not fully disappointed with it as I find myself wanting to drink it. With water, it's more palatable. It is a classic Ardbeg, but I just couldn't get the notes Dr. Bill Lumsden, its creator, put out. Score - 3 Stars (out of 5).
