Our 2 of 5 series of premium tastings, co-hosted with Tasting-So - a Hong Kong based whisky society in vision to connect and share quality whisky with people. Dedicated to a private collection of some of the world's rarest and finest whiskies. A collector's lifetime passion to be shared and tasted with like-minded whisky lovers.
This evening, we are honoured to try the 200-year-old distillery long claimed for it’s smokiest malt from Islay, and also the sweetest whisky of the island. The combination of this rich smokiness and citric sweet core gives it a balance character.
Five of 'The Ultimate Islay Malt' finest and rarest collection. An exquisite chance to taste a very rare bottle of 1998 Ardbeg (22 Years Old) - an extraordinarily bold and mouth-catching dram.

Comment from a guest:
"The whisky was powerful on the palate, the mouth was filled with complex characters of vanilla and leather and a big amount of peatsmoke. The long aftertaste was very memorable, longing with sweetness of cooked fruits and spices."
