Ardbeg Platinum Old and Rare Selection 19 Year Old. Bottle no 2 from 212 bottles from a single cask Ardbeg distilled in 1991 and bottled in July 2010. Aged 19 years and bottled at cask strength.
Initially barley sweet on the nose with vanilla fudge and subtle spices. It then warms throughout a certain citric style to something more salty and darkly peated.
That citrus is still apparent on its soft early palate, with some chocolate, heads to more spiced style vanilla and more peat
On the finish detect the cough drops, camphor, smoke and liquorice with a late ongoing and long lasting beacht and phenolic quality.
