Smokehead – 43%

f97d645ab9a1b87cdc65981d35787505


NOSE: 18

Herbal peat, strong iodine and campfires.

PALATE: 22

Slight sweetness with heaps more peat and iodine with oil and brine.

FINISH: 26

A long rounded finish with gentle warmth and the peat vapours carrying on forever.

PERSONAL: 6

A lively but slightly unrefined peat monster – but then who wants delicate when it comes to peat?

Baby Ardbeg in a bottle and an absolute steal at the price (RRP £38.99 but can readily be found for just North of £30.00).

I’ve also heard rumours, several times in fact, that this is actually a 7 year old Ardbeg, but they’d never admit it. If that was the case then the value for money just gets even better.

 

TOTAL SCORE: 72
