Had the opportunity to try this dram last Saturday thanks to Måns.
Chieftain’s 1998, Ardbeg 12yo 43% abv.
Bottled by Ian Macleod.
Pleasant smoke with some sweet notes and some sea salt.
The smoke is quite the same on the palate not weaker or stronger, hints banana and overall pretty smooth.
Medium long. Some floral notes comes through ?
Overall a good one but nothing extra over the top. It could be that this was like the 8th peated whisky I tried and maybe i was quite numb of all the whiskies I’ve tried.
This was baought on an acution, because its quite rare and not produced anymore.
