Ardbeg Blaaack 101.4 Proof Single Malt Scotch
Ardbeg Blaaack is the feisty Limited Edition bottled in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Ardbeg Committee, founded in the year 2000. To mark such a momentous occasion, the Distillery vowed that the casks used to honor their global flock would be right on the nose. For the first time in Ardbeg’s history, they rounded up Pinot Noir casks from the country that lies the furthest distance from Islay – New Zealand, that other remote island nation where sheep have been known to outnumber the locals by 7:1. ABV 50.7%.
A velvety and surprisingly furry mouthfeel drives your palate into a complex symphony of contrasting flavors. Aniseed, soot and summer fruits – such as cherries, strawberries, apricots and pears – give way to crumbly pastry, dark chocolate, coffee and almonds. A long, lingering sooty finish.
