Take a ride on the rollercoaster.
The new Ardbeg is just round the corner. On February 15th Ardbeg Rollercoaster will be made available through the Ardbeg website (http://www.ardbeg.com
It is a vatting of 10 casks, one from each year between 1997 and 2006, put together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Ardbeg Committee. It is bottled at 57.3% and it will cost £50.
I have a sample but not had chance to taste it properly, but from the desk it is huge. Nose:
coal tar, tobacco, cream toffee. Palate:
Smooth as you like and peaty. The smoke keeps building through the sweetness. Finish:
Just keeps going with peat and spices. Comment:
A great balance of peat and sweetness, wonderfully velvety and smooth.See also....
