"Sweet peat, marzipan and floral notes on the nose, with some salt and spice also making a late appearance. The palate is big, full-bodied, sweet and fruity. Ginger and spicy peat develop. Lingering fruit, peat, spice and a slight hint of antiseptic make up the lengthy finish"

"This is an Ardbeg that comes on strong, is not afraid to weild a few hefty blows and yet, paradoxically, the heavier it gets the more delicate, sophisticated and better balanced it becomes. Enigmatically Ardbegian."
Ardbeg Renaissance or We've Arrived is their first 10 year old that contains malt solely distilled under the new Glenmorangie ownership and is the finale of the series that began with the 6 year old Very Young edition
