Nose: stunningly Ardbegish, if you see what I mean. Pure smoke and apples, extremely satisfying. Mouth: more appeased, perhaps just a bit fragile on the middle, but the old lion is just having a short nap, before the smoke and the cooked white fruits wake up and assault your palate. It’s not extremely complex, perhaps a little less sharp and clean than its French brother, but I’d say it’s also easier to enjoy. Again a great one. 93 points.
