Ar11

Islay single malt scotch whisky

Nearly two decades of aging have not tamed the classic smokiness of this Ardbeg. Expect a brawny dram where sweet, spicy and meaty flavours battle it out over open flames.  Only 840 bottles produced.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Incense thrown on a log fire. Spiced fruitcake with raisins, star anise and saffron served on a wooden board.
  • Palate

    Intense flavours of leather, clove, burnt caramel and liquorice. Teriyaki glaze on barbeque ribs. With water, it develops fruity notes of plum jam and dried blackcurrants.
  • Finish

    Long and bittersweet – an espresso served with biscotti and chunks of dark chocolate.
