Price: $120 for 750ml
Distilled/Owned by: Ardbeg / LVHM
Aged For: NAS
Mashbill: 100% malted barley
Cask Type: Ex-bourbon, finished in “Dark” sherry casks
Chill Filtered: No
Color Added: No
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Nose: Sea air, peat smoke, pipe tobacco, vanilla, coffee and just a slight hint of sherry and blueberry.
Taste: Dark chocolate and vanilla (Bourbon casks showing), sea spray, raisins, cherry, pine wood, char, and tar.
Finish: Gentler than oogie (Obviously due to the ABV) but has a similar fruity linger. The difference being this has more of a caramel slant.
Thoughts: I enjoyed this, but I would pick up an oogie or corry as they are better priced. I think this sits right between to two as far as flavors are concerned.
Score: 86 out of 100
