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 (2)

Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Smoky apricots, sea spray and creamy vanilla with woodsmoke, tar, menthol and fennel.
Sappy, with coal tar soap, anise peppermint and espresso. Sweet malt and smoke sit underneath.
Menthol and spice slowly fade, revealing vanilla sweetness.
Tasting notes from the producer
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.
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.
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.
