Ardbeg 22 year old Cask Strength Whisky Tasting Notes:-
Nose : Smoke is definitely present but not overpowering. An underlying richness of smoked duck, cherries and light iodine.
Palate : The smokiness becomes more apparent. Very peaty but with a slight hint of cooked fruit and raisins, then finally some wood and a little spice.
Finish : Big smoke, developing into an almost creamy mouthfeel before finally a dry but still rich finish.
