Bottled Exclusively for The Ardbeg Committee Members, this Ardbeg 8 year old for Discussion, has unmistakable smoky intensity.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Intense. Charcoal, creosote, tar and treacle toffee. Curious hints of something vegetal, like fennel, celery and green peppers. Once these subside, there are hints of milk chocolate, aniseed and wood smoke. With a little water, more herbal notes appear, like fennel, coriander and lavender.

There are some characteristic Ardbeg aromatic wood smoke and a hint of fresh, salty sea spray.

Palate: A peppery mouthfeel eases into a complex symphony of flavours. Treacle toffee, aniseed, and salted caramel chocolate. Eucalyptus, menthol and briar wood. The tingling, peppery sensation on the palate continues. Sweeter flavours give way to savoury notes. Charcoal, smoked bacon, burnt toast and tar.

Finish: Long and lingering, with a suggestion of peppermint and clove.
