Member Ratings and Notes
Perfect. Lovely. Good.  Lots of peat and pepper with a bit of lemon.  Really come along since Still Young.  Can't wait for the new Ardbeg 10!!  
Musty nose of Ardbeg that I've come to love.  Smooth, smoky, peaty, enjoyable, nutty, yummy.  I thought that the Duke may have found some great bottle of Ardbeg 17 [at the time I hadn't tried the 17 and imagined it to be different than I later learned it is], man was I surprised to find out the young age.  Full of flavor and not too harsh for the years.   
Peaty and tasty.   
Socttish rocket fuel.  One taste and the peaty gasses leech from every pore in your head.  It's a great one-dimensional wakeup call, like skydiving without a parachute into a peat bog. 
A really good peat sweetness and earthy dustiness that adds some metalic notes.  Solid precurser to the 10 year.
