Official Tasting Notes

Colour - Pale Straw

Nose - Intense with a burst of charcoal, creosote, tar and treacle toffee, with curious hints of
something vegetal, like fennel, celery and green peppers. Once these subside, there
are hints of milk chocolate, aniseed and woodsmoke.                                     
With a little drop of water, some more herbal notes appear, like fennel, coriander and
lavender, along with some characteristic Ardbeg aromatic woodsmoke and a hint of
fresh, salty sea spray.

Taste - A distinctively peppery mouthfeel eases into a complex symphony of flavours; treacle
toffee, aniseed, salted caramel chocolate, eucalyptus, menthol and briar wood, to
name but a few. The ‘tingling’, peppery sensation on the palate continues, with the
sweeter flavours giving way to more savoury notes like charcoal, smoked bacon, burnt
toast and tar.

Finish - The aftertaste is long and lingering, with a suggestion of peppermint and clove.
