ARDBEG 1999 GALILEO 1999 70 Cl
A boisterous lad bottled at 49%, this Galileo-themed release from this Islay favourite sharpens typical Ardbeg peat smoke to a point, before shooting it through with sharp tropical fruit notes – sweet pineapple and earthy coconut – gifts from maturation in ex-Marsala wine casks. Originally released in 2012 to commemorate the distillery sending whisky to mature in space.

|Dried apricot fruit, Christmas cake and Christmas spice with clove infused linseed oil and faint toffee/fudge.
|Rich, fruity and spicy with just enough dry sandlewood, bitter almond and tea-like tannins to add balance and depth.
|Long, rich, spiced finish. Overall just a tad too spicy but a most pleasing dram all the same.
