Ar5 shows the trademark smoky-bacon note of the distillery, with a maritime freshness balancing the rich peat and fruit.
Core FlavourSizzling smoky bacon
Cask detailsDistillate from the early 2000’s matured in a Oloroso Sherry Butt
NoseRich aromas of smoky bacon are joined by honeyed fruit and a bracing maritime hit of ozone and seashells, plus refreshing citrus.
PalateFruity and nutty, enveloped by warming peat smoke. Cherry menthol and more citrus, along with spiced meat and liquorice.
FinishIntense smoke, as well as a rich almond nuttiness.
Ar bottlings are the most popular in the Elements range, and this will be no exception.
It’s great Ardbeg for sure.
