Ardbeg Galileo

Score: 89 points

This is a mix of ex-Bourbon and ex-Marsala wine casks, and the nose has notes of grilled peaches and baked apples with a healthy peatiness and hints of roasted hazelnuts. The balance between sweet and peat leans to the sweet side. The taste has an intense peatiness accentuated by citrusy lemon-lime notes, cinnamon undertones and touches of black coffee, banana, and vanilla. The finish is wine-sweet with a good smokiness.
