NOSE SMOKE rises with a cloying sweetness. Intense, pungent and aromatic, a distinctive farmyard scent drifts, along with a crunchy aroma, like creosote or tarry rope. A splash of water disturbs the vapours and dark chocolate cream billows, laced with a ribbon of smoked artichoke.
TASTE Ardbeg’s UNTAMED darker flavours and notes have risen. A burst of bitter sweetness SURGES, disturbing ashy coal dust and casting a haze of cardamom, peppermint and coffee grits. clouds of dark chocolate and mentholic eucalyptus roll in, obscruring the fruit and floral notes usually found at the heart of Ardbeg. Wisps of aniseed twists, cinnamon balls and antiseptic lozenges float on the palate.
FINISH The aftertaste lingers LONG and BOLD, with an almost anaesthetising sensation.
