- Ardbeg 21 Year Old 1993 Old & Rare
Ardbeg 21 Year Old 1993 vintage Islay single malt Scotch whiskey. Single cask refill hogshead bottled February 2015 Hunter Laing & Co. for the Old & Rare Paltinum Selecton. 111 numbered bottles.
An elegant, dark gold whiskey with a powerfully robust nose. Initially sweet, with vanilla, soft fruits and a peat smoke aroma coming through late. Smooth and mellow on the palate with sweet, fruity notes at the beginning, but a nutty, peaty character eventually taking over. The finish is long, lingering and slightly dry with peat smoke and oak.
