Ardbeg Feis Ile 2012 Ardbeg Day. 2012 Islay festival release from Ardbeg matured in refill sherry casks that were previously used for the Uigeadail.
Big waft of Peat, nicely fruity. More than a hint of very old Speyside. Vanilla, BBQ sauce, kick of chilli. Maybe a touch of satay.
Full and rounded. Absolutely massive mouthfeel. Peat weaves in well with the nicely sherried notes. Touch of seaweed, camphor.
Sherry carries through into the finish, but a nice creaminess is contributed by the first fill bourbon too. Dries out at the death.
