"The nose is briny and meaty, pulling you into the salty sea and showing a combination of campfire and chocolate akin to s'mores. The palate offers phenols in the range of asphalt and tar. There's also saltwater taffy, raspberry syrup, candied pears, and fudge. The finish offers surf and turf in the form of soil and seaweed, seasoned with salt and pepper, as well as a light touch of dried fruits at the conclusion. An exciting expression of young Ardbeg spirit."
