Product Description

A limited release of a 21 year old from stock pre-dating the Glenmorangie take over is always going to cause a Corryvreckan of excitement and i was very excited to sample this 100% Ex-Bourbon cask aged offering with natural colour and non chill filtered.

Nose: Creamy lime curd with fresh herbs, elderflower cordial, white pepper, sooty ash smoke, freshly cut grass by the coast & salty/ozone notes.

Palate:Spicy green bell peppers, salted lime, menthol, floral/grassy/gorse like notes, sooty vanilla & white pepper.

Finish: Very clean, fresh and elegant with a lovely and almost delicate balance of salty/coastal notes, lime curd, herbaceous, vegetal and sooty white ash peat notes.

The years have been kind to this Ardbeg with the peat smoke becoming more in unison with the fruit and spice revealing a more elegant and less medicinal style for this distillery.
