Customer Rating

One of the more eagerly anticipated releases of 2014, Ardbeg Kildalton was a limited release made from a marriage of smoky and creamy whisky aged in bourbon casks and spicier ones from first-fill and refill sherry casks. This is big, bold and complex.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose:

      Smoky apricots, sea spray and creamy vanilla with woodsmoke, tar, menthol and fennel.

    • Palate:

      Sappy, with coal tar soap, anise peppermint and espresso. Sweet malt and smoke sit underneath.

    • Finish:

      Menthol and spice slowly fade, revealing vanilla sweetness.

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    • Nose:

      A beautiful, seductive, exotic bouquet, with hints of smoked apricots in syrup, salt and pepper seasoning and some soft, creamy vanilla. This then leads in to a symphony of smoky and herbal notes, like woodsmoke, tar, menthol and fennel. A little water releases more volatile top notes, like pine resin, vetiver root, coriander, liquorice and a curious soapy note.

    • Taste:

      The texture is soft, ‘sappy’, gently coating the tongue. The explosion of firm robust flavours is unquestionably Ardbeg – coal tar soap, aniseed, peppermint, espresso coffee, sweet barley malt and a lingering, aromatic smokiness.

    • Finish:

      The lingering finish is both fresh with menthol and spicy, with hints of allspice, clove and bitter almonds, finally revealing a distant vanilla essence sweetness.
