Colour: Deep Amber.
Aroma: Mellow, rich and enticing, with the unmistakable Ardbeggian combination of tar, soot and pine resin. This leads into dark chocolate, treacle toffee, coffee grinds and a distant, nutty/ oaky note. A splash of water initiates a burst of fresh, briny sea-spray with a hint of salt, some linseed oil, and then some more of the classic Ardbeg pine resin/ lime top note. A remarkably fresh bouquet for such a peaty whisky.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and mouth-coating, slightly chewy.
Taste: Intense, robust peat smoke, savoury smoky bacon, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also an incredible creamy, sweet vanilla/milk chocolate note, which soothes the palate.
The never-ending aftertaste sees more linseed oil (a hint of the Sherry Casks in the recipe), some creosote and tar, but understated, and always gentle.
