I have had this sample for around 2 years and never found time to taste it. Till a few days ago… I like a lot the Ardbeg whiskies profile and some of my best vivid memories of whisky are related to Ardbeg… but when I tasted this one…
“The best most fantastic peated whisky that I have had in a lot of time...”
And it is bottled at cask strength. A great Ardbeg that you can still buy.
This dram has a fino-like color.
Nose (93): more than average. peat, citrus, honey, salt, smoke, vanilla. The fucking peat perfection!
Palate (93): . peat, earth, citrus, honey, vanilla, coffee, salt.
Finish (93): longer than average. peat, salt, honey.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Ardbeg Renaissance with 93 points over 100.

Speechless, I love this kind of peat. Definitively one of the best whiskies I have tasted so far this year ( if we ignore the Lost Blend from Master of Malt ). Glad that I got a bottle when it still had a decent price. Stuff for enjoying.
