The first new addition to Ardbeg’s range in over a decade! A more approachable side to Ardbeg single malt that’s rounded, without losing the characteristic distillery style. Maturation took place in Pedro-Ximenez sherry casks and bourbon barrels and then married in a French-oak marrying vat. The end result is rounded and smoky with notes of toffee, aniseed, date and banana.
Producer says “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 and cinnamon), some cigar smoke, and a very unusual flavour of grilled artichokes.”
