Ardbeg’s Traigh Bhan launch is now in its fourth annual version — at all times 19 years outdated however altering from 12 months to 12 months resulting from its small batch make-up and ever-evolving choice of casks to select from. This 12 months’s bottling is matured with the next proportion of Oloroso Sherry casks, Batch 4 is subtly completely different to the earlier releases of Traigh Bhan. Whereas the 2021 Traigh Bhan was a letdown, we’ve discovered that this whisky actually does change fairly a bit annually. Will 2022 change into a hit? Let’s discover out.

Peaty and fairly medicinal, however barely much less overpowering than prior expressions of Traigh Bhan, the nostril has a candy honey character to it, dribbling with lighter notes of lemon oil, orange peel, and crushed sesame seeds. The maritime scent of salty sea spray is clear, providing a pleasing steadiness to the clouds of smoke that drift from the glass. Candy and smoke make a vigorous however balanced impression on the palate, with a hearty mixture of recent fruit, milk chocolate, vanilla, and tea leaf. The affect of sherry isn’t overwhelming, however there’s sufficient of it to note. All advised, the dram has a lot to seize on to, making for a welcome aid of a return to type for this expression from Ardbeg.

92.4 proof.
