The ever-peaty, ever-popular core expression of the Ardbeg range. A non-chill filtered and cask-strength Islay. The nose is expressive: smoky fruit, citrus zest, cacao, mint, black pepper, graphite, pineapples and bell peppers. The taste is as explosive and reflects the nose, with the addition of spices and brine. The finish of espresso, aniseed and pear never ends.
