Description

It's here! The first core release from Ardbeg in over a decade, but it's sure to be worth the wait. After being matured in a combination of bourbon, virgin oak and Pedro Ximenez casks all this whisky is than transferred in a new 'gathering vat' where the flavours delicately marry together. A big, full and yet silky dram and a welcome addition to the Ardbeg range. We have tried and love this already, having been impressed by the creamy and peaty nose that is lifted by orange zest and a deep, minty, peaty palate that finishes with cigar box spices. Fans of Uigeadail should be delighted.
Tasting Notes
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Rounded and subtly smoky (Applewood smoked), with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle and dates. Acurious suggestion of juicy fruits, such as peach and banana. With a drop of water, reminders of Ardbeg’s classic fragrance – lime, pine resin, fennel, saddle soap and tar. A gentle waxiness, like fragrant candlewax, and hints of smoked herbs.
Palate: A smooth, creamy texture leads into a huge syrupy sweetness, flavours of milk chocolate, treacle toffee, aniseed, orange and smoky tea leaves. Gentle, sweet spices (nutmeg & cinnamon), some cigar smoke, and a very unusual flavour of grilled artichokes. Long and sweet, with floral overtones, mint toffee and some gentle malty, biscuit notes.
Finish: Lingering, seductive, gentle yet intense, with flavours of aniseed, hickory and distant subtle smoke.
