Ardbeg 1991/2001 10 Year Old Murray McDavid

Review 24 - Ardbeg 1991 Murray McDavid 10.jpg

Quick review from a dram I had at The Feathers Pub in Toronto.

Ardbeg 1991/2001 MurrayMcDavid 46%

Region: Islay

ABV: 46%

E150: No

Chill-filtered: No

Cask Type: ex-Bourbon

Container: Feathers Pub Glassware, neat.
Colour: Light starw
Nose: Vanilla, peat, floral, brine, light sweet smoke, faint hint of citrus, honey.

Really simple nose, clean, loads of vanilla from the ex-Bourbon cask.
Palate: Oily mouthfeel, Lots of woody peat, oak, vanilla, salt, citrus, pepper.
Finish: short finish, faints away pretty quickly, leaving a bit of vanilla behind
Score: 82/100

Good mouth feel, more or less a single dimension, no off notes, decent nose, and falls short on the finish. I enjoy the OB 10 more than this.
