This is a full-throttle expression of Ardbeg bottled at a consistently higher a.b.v. (currently 54.1%). It smells of salt, smoke, peat, toast, and many other things we are sure. It is full-bodied, with an intense aroma an flavour. Few whiskies can produce an atmosphere around them by virtue of their aroma alone. This is one of them and it is not for the faint of heart (or the adverse to peat).
