Ardbeg from the mid 1990's and Cadenhead's single cask quality, doesn't get much better.
Nose: Refined peat with obvious lemon citrus. Salty and sweet. Some green vegetation.
Palate: Sweet lemon malt followed by a peat explosion, then come the maritime elements.
Finish: Great mix of lemon, earth, peat and malty vegetation with a salty end.

Expected nothing less from this beauty. Still see these popping up at auction for fairly reasonable prices. Highly recommended!
