This is the second Batch of Ardbeg Traigh Bhan, a limited edition series of 19 year old whiskies from this iconic Islay distillery. The nose offers sweet wood smoke and creme fraiche, which develops into savoury fennel and roasted tea leaves. The palate has salty notes to start which shift to gentle medicinal notes, followed by peanut brittle, smoked pineapple, and zesty lime juice. The finish returns to big savoury and smoky notes which linger. A wonderful example of the refined peaty complexity of old Ardbeg.
