- Appearance : vibrant gold.
- Nose : balanced, deep. Peat smoked chocolate, candied lemon and grapefruit, camphor. Remains true to its Islay heritage with sea spray and smoked fish. Roasted coffee and pipe tobacco.
- Palate : firm, lively. Initially spiced with black and white pepper and clove before smoke and ash take over. Subtle liquorice in the mid-palate, becoming earthier and more saline as it unfurls. Chalk, fresh apples, pears and citrus fruits.
- 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

Étonnant ! Vraiment étonnant ce goût de fumé ... C’est nouveau pour moi. Pour apprécier ce whisky je pense qu’il faut être un peu connaisseur. J’ai lu que ce whisky était fort en tourbe ce qui explique son goût, pas désagréable finalement. Je le recommande pour ceux qui cherche un whisky original.
