Member Ratings and Notes
Light fruity white wine nose. Ginormous floral body, long evaporative finish.   Just a really great taste, gave me chills. 
The nose lacks the distinctive Ardbeg mustiness, and is instead replaced with white wine accents, an unplaceable sugary scent, and slight nuts.  The palate is a wonderful rush of strong fruitiness, which blends into smoke with hints of lavender and bubblegum.  This continues through the almost-lengthy finish with nuances of spice.  Unique and special.  
Florally peaty?  Nice.  Incredibly smooth, almost too much for my personal preference.  Delicious, but you have to concentrate on it.
