ARDBEG Dark Cove

Single Malt, Scotland / Islay 70cl Ref: 51346

Limited Edition : 3 bottles max per order
Launched on Ardbeg Night, this limited edition is made up of a heart matured in dark sherry casks, married with ex-bourbon. Inspired from the turbulent distillery’s past, this is probably the darkest Ardbeg the brand has ever seen.

Its profile? At first meaty, earthy and spicy. Bold notes of dark chocolate. The finish is long, spicy and rich with lingering notes of toffee, coffee and tar.

Tasting note

  • Appearance : sombre
  • Nose : les notes carnées, terreuses et épicées apparaissent d’abord. Puis de nombreuses notes de chocolat noir émergent avec de l’orange, du caramel gourmand, du café et du chêne. De lointaines effluves de fumée s’accompagnent d’une note fleurie rappelant les mûriers en fleurs et d’huile de lin.
  • Palate : la sensation est astringente proche du citron vert acidulé. Raisins secs, dattes, gingembre et poivre sont présents en attaque puis s’apaisent. Des notes de charbon, de vernis à bois et de goudron apparaissent ; pour finir sur des notes plus gourmandes de jambon fumé vieilli et de nouilles à l’encre de seiche.
  • Overall : longue, épicée et riche avec des notes persistantes de caramel, de café et de goudron.
The brand

The brand

The Ardbeg distillery produces the peatiest single malt in Scotland In the past, the strong peaty character of its single malts originated from a lack of ventilation in the malt kiln which led to the smoky flavours being locked in. In addition to its peaty character, Ardbeg also presents aromas of liquorice and varnish. The single malts offer a charming, rustic character allied with great sophistication and a rich expression. Thanks to a passionate following among whisky enthusiasts, Ardbeg’s production is almost entirely dedicated to its single malt rather than blends. Find out more
