A discontinued 25 Year Old malt from Ardbeg distillery named after the ancient Scots Gaelic nobility the "Lord of the Isles"

Vol: 46%

Tasting Notes

Colour - Light Gold.

Nose - Deep, rich and sweet: the sweetness of chocolate, marzipan and cherries surrounds a deep and peaty centre revealing the warmth of leather and a heady oily characteristic. Beneath the oil, cocoa and a rich maltiness are discovered.
With water, the flavour spectrum is widened as both smoke and salt emerge from the sweet and peaty complexity giving woodsmoke, tarry rope and leather. Later, the delicacy of mandarin fruit is discovered, followed by hints of heather and lavender scent.

Taste - Powerfully peaty and chewing, with a luscious silky and oily mouth-feel balanced by a mouth-watering effect. The taste is initially sweet with vanilla and chocolate giving way rapidly to a crescendo of peat and cocoa.

Finish - Long and dry with chocolate malt and crushed peat resting satisfyingly on the palate.
