Product Description

The 2016 Ardbeg Day special release. This is the Special Committee Only Release that is bottled at a different strength from the standard release. It is matured in ex-Bourbon casks and ex-Sherry casks. It is the "Darkest Ardbeg Ever" according to the label!

Nose: Explodes like a bonfire or bbq that has had hickory & soy sauce marinated ribs and mackeral on it, charcoal soot, leather, squid ink, cured salami, tobacco, earthy fungai, meat stock/sherry reduction.

Palate: Big, tarry and oily delivery with smoked mincemeat, dark bitter chocolate, smoked oatmeal stout, salami, inky soy sauce, 5 spice, sweaty leather, rum soaked cigars, earthy mushrooms with balsamic glaze.

Finish: Epic and long with chinease 5 spice, sooty/tarry peat with sweet coca cola marinated smoked meat, chewy raisin, aromatic tobacco, dark menthol chocolate, squid ink in sweet sherry.

A real return to form and Ardbeg at its best with areal umami feel to this release and the extra ABV of this limited release for the committee only is going to be one very coverted bottle in the near future.
