Tonight I’m bringing you all a Scotch review! Hope you enjoy and hope this gets your interest up!
This peated cask strength single malt comes from Ardbeg in the Islay region of Scotland. As with every cask strength whisky, it varies in ABV but this batch comes in at 54.2%.
Goldenrod color on the pour. Very peaty/smoky on the nose with tones of oak, toffee and a fruity note I can’t quite put my finger on – maybe honeydew melon? Attack is bold and hot with alcohol astringency, substantial peat, caramel and a hint of dark chocolate. Finish is very hot and white long with tones of smoke, orange zest and hot cinnamon.
A solid cask strength dram. Not my favorite but very good to have with a nice strong cigar. Had a Padron Delicias in Maduro when pairing for review but would do well with other similar sticks. Rating: 4.25/5.
