Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Vanilla ice cream, citrus, charred pineapple, cherries, pine and an initially light smokiness.

    • Palate

      Buttery vanilla, chocolate limes, orange peel, oaky spice, and soft wood and charcoal smoke.

    • Finish

      More citrus, ash and lingering fruit.

  • Tasting notes by Toby Q

    • This Islay-gator has a straw-amber complexion, and a nose of sweet caramel, tropical fruit and a hint of pine. I found the palate to be very different to the house style with lots of chewy oak and spicy rich ginger, caramel nougat and a long elegant finish which gave me memories of rooms layered with clouds of cigar smoke and an open fire.

    Cole E,

    I tried this Whisky 3 years ago at the Ardbeg Distillery. I immediately fell in love and have been searching high and low for a bottle since then. Just got one as a present from my better present ever. It's smoke and fire like most Ardbeg's but I also find it lighter and more elegant. It's amazing and I'm thrilled to add a bottle to my collection.

    Tom O,

    Incredible! I am a huge Ardbeg fan, but this takes it to another level even when compared with the exquisite uigeadail. I will treasure every drop of this bottle as seems to be very difficult to find... Definitely one to be kept hidden from guests or for your very nearest and dearest. I won''t attempt to go in to tasting notes, but if you are a fan of Ardbeg, this superb bottle will have you grinning from ear to ear at every sip. Can be drunk neat comfortably.

  • Harpreet Singh,

    Sweet barbeque with real spice and a lingering smokiness. It's like a small battle in your mouth. A really special whisky. I remember being bemused by the luke warm reviews at the time of release. The price now proves that those reviews didn't reflect the opinions of dram consumers. I've drunk 3 bottles..I've refrained from opening the 4th. May just have a last one..
