The 2020 Ardbeg Day Commitee release has arrived, Ardbeg Blaaack celbrates 20 years of the Ardbeg Commitee and also Ardbeg's position in the whisky world as something of a Black Sheep due to the intense flavour of the whisky.. Bottled in a striking Black bottle and in keeping with the theme, this whisky has been matured in New Zealand Pinot Noir casks, the first time the distillery has used such casks.
Official Tasting Notes
Aroma- Baked summer fruit pudding, Cedar wood/cigar box, smoky jam tarts, oak tannins, truffles. With water an intense ‘bitter cherry’ scent, a curious salty/savoury note, and then some lovely, perfumed violet notes.
Palate - A velvety/mouth furring texture leads into delicious symphony of contrasting flavours — savory & sweet and the same time. Aniseed & soot, summer fruits (cherries, strawberry's, apricots and pears), pastry/cake mix, dark chocolate, coffee and more bitter cherries and almond.
Finish - A long lingering sooty finish.
