A first tasting of this year's special Ardbeg day dram. will be available June 2nd in many Ardbeg embassies worldwide. worth a try. lovely.
Nose: peat reek. Sweet oloroso sherry with wet bandages diesel fuel. Cinnamon. Mushrooms and tea. Vanilla pods. With water the peat reek gets even stronger damp wood. Cherubs.
Palate: wham. Very powerful. Hitting on peat burnt sugar espresso and ginger. Smoke and ash are there alright. On the second wave burnt crust of creme brûlée and dried fruit. Creamy and savory. It's like the uigedail but a tad darker. Yet the oloroso stands out. Creamy. With water it's getting more fruity on the dried fruit and sweeter !
Finish: dried fruit, ash and double espresso. With the burnt sugar lingering.
