A smooth, rich and intense aroma with classic Ardbeg notes of soot and pine resin that blend with aromas of dark chocolate, caramel, ground coffee and a hint of oak / hazelnut. Smoky notes are intense and peaty with smoked bacon, cinnamon and nutmeg that combine with sweet notes of vanilla, baked apples and creamy milk chocolate on the palate. The whole is fine, balanced and has a lot of elegance.
