Looking for peat? Try 169 PPM, that’s about triple the standard Ardbeg. The nose on this is massive peat (no suprise there) smells like new rubber. On the palate it’s super rich and really coats the entire mouth. Hard to believe that it packs this kind of ABV, there is virtually no heat at all. The finish is like the ending of a barbeque, you may feel compelled to lick the inside of your glass, your behavior is understood at this point. There is a bit of dry fruit in the finish as well. Fantastic stuff, this is a must try for Islay peat junkies.
