n: fresh peach juice, malty, potpurri (especially lavender & chamomile). Faint tease of smoke (?) and fresh sliced green apple; this is floral and light, but not boring.

 

t: delicate but full flavour and robust. Follows nose with more of the green apple in the front. Has an essence of fresh baguette that I like.

Very fruity and floral with torched creme brulee in the finish. Malty oak and clover honey in finish that runs a little hot. [B/B-]

 
Fuji
 
Fruity, light and malty. This has old school malt quality.

Ardbeg Kildalton 2014 Release
Added on Friday, Dec 12, 2014 at 05:53 AM
  Bottler: Ardbeg
  Age: NAS yrs Type: Scotch
  Vintage: 2014 Subtype: Single Malt
  ABV: 46.00 % Region: Islay
  Price: $205 Availability: Specialty Stores
The Scotch gets its name from the nearby Kildalton Cross which, at 1,200 years of age, is said to be an Islay icon. Non-chill filtered, created “from a range of different ages and styles of Ardbeg matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks” that, taste wise, brought together the “powerful flavour of coal tar soap with the softness of sweet, sweet barley malt.”

Ries
 
n: great! Salt, smoke, dark fruit full of salted plums (like ume) with a white frosting sweetness. Very maritime and briney. 

t: salt, dill brine, with some typical Ardbeg pitch tar & BBQ, but thin in the mouthfeel and fades to smoked paper. It's very light and I am surprised that this is 46%; feels like less than 40% at best. Match smoke, light cream and movie popcorn butter. Fruity vanilla and apricots with a slight dusting of cocoa in middle. Floral and soft sweetness in a new leather finish.  [B-/C+]
