Ardbeg Still Young
Committee Approved, 2nd release, 56.2%
distilled 1998, bottled 2006
 
colour: very pale gold.
nose: peat, salty sea spray, citrus/lime, smoke starting to join together in classic Ardbeg style, still a little fractured in the nose (it’s STILL young though =oP), oak, vanilla, chalk. I find it attractive, complexity forming.
palate: coating, sweet, peat
finish: quite sweet, peaty, smokey, citrus/lime, oak, vanilla, some spice, long finish, abv is noticeable though not too hot.
 
notes: just a small sip and you get a big impact, it’s as mentioned; a little fragmented and not as integrated as it will be with further aging though this is still a whopper of a dram, big, powerful, complexity forming and good flavours. Awesome next stage in development.
