A first-fill bourbon barrel of Ardbeg, with all the muscular tones you would expect from the distillery. The sweetness blends with the smoke creating classic notes recognisable by all the distillery's fans.
Core FlavourRich smoky chocolate
Cask detailsDistillates from the early 2000’s matured in a Bourbon Barrel
NoseGentle and mild with notes of resin, grass and sweet porridge with honey. Sweet, fresh, white fruits are hiding behind a meaty and spicy smokiness. Picnic in a pine forest with Parma ham sandwiches marinated with mint, thyme, pepper and cumin, and a big portion of raita served as a side.
PalateThe fresh first-fill cask comes alive and is predominant on the palate. The spiciness is still there with a much bitter kick this time, while the whisky becomes creamier. Predominant is still the herbaceous smoke walking side by side a fresh lemon and lime zestiness.
FinishSpicy and smoky medium finish. Smoked lemon peel with honey and vanilla biscuits with the classic mild meatiness, characteristic of this style of whisky.
