Product Description

The 2013 Ardbeg Day whisky is called Ardbog, released on June 1st initially as an Embassy exclusive. Taking inspiration from their last few releases, this is a down-to-earth whisky, concerned with the history uncovered as you dig deep into the peat bogs of Islay. The whisky is a vatting of 10 year old spirit, some matured in bourbon casks and some in manzanilla casks for a balanced of soft, sweet and earthy flavours.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    • Colour

      Deep ochre.

    • Aroma

      Deep, enticing waves of pecan nuts, salty toffee and caramels, with a distinct whiff of herbs, lavender and violets. Soft, aromatic smoke is interwoven with salty savoury notes. Water brings forth herbal notes, smoked rhubarb and aged balsamic vinegar.

    • Taste

      A full oily/tingly mouthfeel leads into a powerful, savoury burst of flavours – salted cashews and peanuts, clove, aniseed toffee, green olives and a curious hint of anchovy. A lingering aftertaste in which classic Ardbeg sweetness is kept in check by oak tannins, clove and coffee grounds.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Underlying candy sweetness with a bit of tar, tyre-fire smoke and preserved lemons (Moroccan style, in salt). Lots of brine and hints of plimsoll rubber and new bandages.

    • Palate

      More brine up front, along with sweet apple and lemon, bitter pith, coal smoke and dust, and a rich earthiness underneath. Quite dry after the initial sweetness, with sour woody notes creeping in around the edges.

    • Finish

      Long, with apple skin, lemon peel, salted caramel, dry oak and a touch of black pepper.

    • Comment

      On my first taste I wasn’t particularly impressed, with my comment being a not particularly disparaging ‘tastes like Ardbeg’. However, after a weekend of the bottle being opened it’s definitely opened up a bit – an interesting balance of salt and smoke, although maybe a little bit dry for some.

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    • Nose

      Sweet honey, old wet mossy oak, some hints of chocolate shavings, then developing raisin syrup and some notes of bandages / elastoplast and balsamic vinegar. Indeterminate red berry fruit, Cadbury’s fruit and nut bar. With time in the glass some lemon and fruit cake notes.

    • Palate

      Sweet and sooty, with a developing strong salted nuttiness, particularly Brazil nuts, hazelnuts and almonds. Also quite citrussy with tart lemon juice flavours, plus burnt wet wood and some strong medicine cabinet / iodiney notes.

    • Finish

      Salt and honey / caramel with the lemon notes becoming more boiled-sweet like.

    • Comment

      Less of the famous tarry rope and more salt than normal Ardbeg. A whisky made for hipflasks.

    Absolutely one of my favorite Ardbegs. Assuming you like smoky whisky you can not go wrong here. Stunning whisky.

    Ruben Pi?a,

    I’ve been through four bottles in two years time and it’s such an enjoyable drink... I like it with just a touch of water to bring out the cloudiness... Both fiery and relaxing... Love it!!!

    Average Joe,

    This is a fantastic Ardbeg expression and still worth the price! Complex and wonderful with so many sides to it. It's powerful yet smooth. Something I savor on special occasions only.

    Greg smyth,

    As a scotch this is fair at best to be kind.it should not sell for what it does.
