Tasting Notes
COLOUR - Rich Gold
NOSE - An enormous whisky, a perfect fusion of sweetness, spice, creamy malt and deep smoke, a sensational example of multi layered classic Ardbeg Whisky
Fudge, burnt sugar and treacle toffee emerge first with peat encased in dark chocolate. Cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg spices bring warmth and richness before a wave of iodine, coal tar and linseed oil takes hold. Fresh top notes of menthol, fennel and pine resin lift you higher. Dipping in further reveals deep notes of brambles and black cherries together with hallmark beeswax.
With water, smoke bellows from the glass with smoky chimneys, leafy bonfires and tea leaves. A stony beach is discovered, covered with crispy seaweed, creosote and resinous tarry ropes. A bowlful of apples and pears awaits, dipped in toffee with dates and spices. Smoky asparagus and sweet potato emerge with pepper and earthy peat.
TASTE - Big, rich and exceedingly smooth and peaty, the mouthful is at once creamy and chewy, coating the entire palate with a wave of silk velvet smoke.
Fragrant peat smoke rolls over the tongue bringing black cherries, cloves, chocolate ganache and fudge. a deliciously smoky dessert. A breeze of fresh coriander, menthol and violets lift to the roof of the mouth, followed by chewy sugared almonds and tangy lime juice. Waxy peat smoke constantly fills the palate with rolling cocoa, clotted cream and scented smoke from beginning to end.
FINISH - The taste refuses to go away. The finish is long and scented with fragrant wood smoke, spices (cloves and aniseed) and clotted cream.
