Ardbeg Twenty Something (guaranteed 22 years old) Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Ardbeg Twenty Something (guaranteed 22 years old) 70cl. This whisky was born during a time when the iconic Ardbeg Distillery name was almost consigned to the history books. During a period of uncertainty for Ardbeg in the 1980s and 1990s, when the stills were near empty and the filling store silent, a handful of young whisky enthusiasts dared to dream. Together, with hope in their hearts, they laid down a handful of casks and kept the Ardbeg spirit alive. The fruits of their hopes have paid off with this spectacular whisky.
Nose: Lime cordial, orange marmalade and buttery pastry, with some TCP elements and refined smoke. Hints of vanilla and clove develop.
Palate: There's plenty of dark and orchard fruits among golden syrup, dark chocolate and black peppercorn. Cured meat and a little salinity emerge.
Finish: Long and sweet, with a touch of bittersweet smoke.
