Ardbeg Blaaack 92 Proof Single Malt Scotch

by Ardbeg
$144.50
Size
The Ardbeg Day expressions from the eponymous distillery on Islay are always exciting, and the 2020 release is no different. Named Ardbeg Blaaack, this single malt was matured in Pinot Noir casks from New Zealand! The name was inspired by another thing New Zealand is well-known for - sheep! Apparently there are seven sheep for every one person in the country.

Aroma: On the nose baked fruit pudding knits together seamlessly with cedar wood and aromatic cigar box. Oak tannins and rich truffles then break away to reveal subtle notes of smoky jam tart. With a splash of water, intense aromas of bitter cherry and a curiously zesty note emerges. Naturally, this dram then travels in a different direction with lovely fragrant violet notes.

Taste: A velvety and surprisingly furry mouthfeel drives your palate into a complex symphony of contrasting flavours. Aniseed, soot and summer fruits – such as cherries, strawberries, apricots and pears – give way to crumbly pastry, dark chocolate, coffee and almonds.

Finish: A long, lingering sooty finish.
