Tasting Notes for Ardbeg 8 Year Old For Discussion

Colour – Pale Straw

NoseIntense 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.

TasteA 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.
