ARDBEG DAY – BlaaacK COMMITTEE RELEASE - 50.7 %
Inspired by the wandering flock of Ardbeg fans, Ardbeg whisky creators have travelled to the furthest possible point from Islay to source casks for this year’s Ardbeg Day whisky;
to New Zealand, that other remote farming island where sheep have also been known to outnumber people by 7:1. Ardbeg creators have rounded up the finest Pinot Noir casks
Hence in 2020, Ardbeg will celebrate the theme of ‘Black Sheep’, because they like to think of themselves as a little bit different too.
Nose : Baked summer fruit pudding, Cedar wood/cigar box, smoky
jam tarts, oak tannins, truffles.
With water an intense ‘bitter cherry’ scent, a curious
salty/savoury note, and then some lovely, perfumed violet
Palate: A velvety/mouth furring texture leads into delicious
symphony of contrasting flavours — savory & sweet and the
Aniseed & soot, summer fruits (cherries, strawberry's,
apricots and pears), pastry/cake mix, dark chocolate, coffee
and more bitter cherries and almond.
Finish: A long lingering sooty finish.
