A mix of predominantly bourbon matured and some rare sherry matured Ardbeg resulting a delicious well balanced, peaty, intense dry smoke and fruity single malt that explodes in the mouth.
Winner 'Liquid Gold Award' 2011 in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible™ (97.5 points) & IWSC Gold Best in Class 2010 Award.
Full flavoured and rich with a deep mouth-coating texture, the taste is an intriguing balance between sweet, spicy and deep smoky flavours. Amazingly long and chewy with lingering raisiny, deep mocha tones and rich aromatic smoke into the perfectly integrated finish.
