Product Description

The Committee only release for Ardbeg day 2017 bottled at 51.7% instead of the 46% of the more widely available release of the Kelpie.

Finished in Virgin Oak casks from the Black Sea Adyghe Republic in Russia after initial maturation in Ex-Bourbon casks.

Burnished gold in colour

Nose: A wonderful dancing nose-layers of intertwined aromas whipped away on a sea breeze. Powerful notes of oily peat, dark chocolate, smoked fish, hints of seaweed, and a curious sharp herbal note. Waves of spicy, black pepper with water, creamy coffee notes bubble to the surface, along with Ardbeg's classic pine resin and smoked fudge. Even some hints of smoked coconut.

Palate: Plunge into a peppery mouthfeel leading to  sea-salty flavours of smoked fish, before a delectable tide of bacon, dark chocolate and turkish coffee washes over the palate. Then peachy, estery fruit, hickory wood and a suggestion of black olives. Incredibly deep, the legacy of its casks and their journey from the black sea.

Finish: Seemingly lasting forever, with deep, deep, almost subterranean flavours of clove, tar and rich coffee.
