- Ardbeg 1998 Renaissance
The fourth and final bottling of the Very Young, Still Young and Almost There series. A real gem from 2008 showcasing the efforts under the ownership of LVMH.
A blast of peat soaked in vibrant tropical juices. Toasted vanilla and sizzling cinnamon escape into the atmosphere with sherbet space dust and smooth Swiss chocolate spheres. The effect of the full ten-year-old maturation explodes on the tongue. An explosive crackle of peat sizzles and pops setting off a chain reaction of flavour explosions: cinnamon-spiced toffee and smoked chocolate limes fuse on the tongue.
