It’s been a long time coming but we have finally got the latest committee release from this fine distillery. Produced in the very still that stands at the entrance to the Ardbeg distillery. This is a limited edition 21 year old that will be much sought after and every Ardbeg fan will want to add this to their collection.
Ardbeg Twenty One. A rare glimpse into Ardbeg’s precarious past. A shining example of it’s unwavering quality. this momentous bottling contains whisky distilled during some of the most precarious days of Ardbeg’s past, when only a handful of casks were set aside. Sumptuous and soothing, melding pepper, rye and Ardbeg’s famous peaty smoke, this is a golden dram born from adversity, determination and dedication.
Nose: A beautiful, sumptuous but curious mix of tarry smoke, Ardbeg ice cream and black pepper. Some green leafy herbal top notes are then discovered, like fennel or basil. A splash of water releases sweet toffee, popcorn and buttery oak, but always anchored by Ardbeg’s sooty, tarry smoke.
Taste: An intense, peppery, ‘fizzy’ mouthfeel gives way to rich flavours of liquorice/aniseed, marzipan, toasted rye bread, charcoal and peppermint.
Finish: Long and lingering but quite gentle, almost soothing, with more coal tar, aniseed and smoky butter.
