Tasting Notes (from inside box)
Colour - Bright gold.
Aroma - With the first sniff, encounter delicious desserts with powerful sherbet and vanilla ice cream, and the sweetness of ripe bananas and barley sugar. Waxy milk chocolate follows with cloves and menthol spice, and gently toasted cedar wood. Water opens up the aroma to reveal barbecued bananas smothered with milk chocolate and cream. Intense pine resin and fresh fruit salad follow. A gentle smokiness wafts from a barbecue on the beach. Subtle fish follows a creamy sauce with slices of lemon and lime.
Taste - A chewy and silky mouth feel with a lovely sweet-dry balance on taste. The initial taste brings sweet fudge and toffee with sherbet lemon and lime. Banana skins and spiced pears progress to chewy sugared almonds. Rich hickory smoke builds up mid palate, revealing tarry oily depths with espresso, dark chocolate and aniseed.
Finish - Long and smooth, reminiscent of a liqueur coffee and chocolate.

Distilled and Bottled in Scotland Ardbeg Distillery Limited, Islay of Islay, Scotland.
