Ardbeg Perpetuum Single Malt Whisky celebrating Ardbeg Distillerys 200th Anniversary.
Nose : Mellow, rich and enticing, tar, soot and pine resin. Leading into dark chocolate, treacle toffee, coffee grinds and a distant, nutty/ oaky note.
Palete: Intense, robust peat smoke, savoury smoky bacon, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also an incredible creamy, sweet vanilla/milk chocolate note, which soothes the palate.
Finish: The never-ending aftertaste sees more linseed oil (a hint of the Sherry Casks in the recipe). Some creosote and tar, but understated, and always gentle.
