Member Ratings and Notes
Peat, smoke, sugar. Well balanced. Good! Tasted blind, I thought this was perhaps Laphroiag Cask Strength. Upon reveal, I was suprised that a 30 year whiskey did not have the additional level of depth and complexity I would have expected. A good whisky, but overhyped and not worth the price. I don't think the last 15 years in the barrel improved it much. 
N: Huge, iodine, peat. T: PEAT (reminds me of Uigeadail). F: A little hot, peat, caramel. Long finish. O: Well above average peat heavy scotch. 
N: Smoky, campfire. P: Peaty. T: Peaty, warm, good.  
Peaty nose, like smelling a campfire that smells like scotch. Smoke flavor. Overwhelming peat. My kind of smoky drink.  
Peaty nose but not overwhelming, smoky campfire mouthful of love…hot finish with a taste of coffee and roasted nuts. 
This is Ardbeggy! I think smoother than the 10 (but it's been a while). Spicier than Laphroaig Cask Strength.  
[No Notes] 
n: tar, gunpowder, and black tea. Rich deep earthy peat and strawberries in buttermilk. Dried cherries in a musty basement. 
t: dried strawberries with a dose of old style peat and BBQ meat char. Both sweet & sour with a bit of an umami flavour. Nice ash in finish and sour berries reappear in the tail end.
