This is the 2020 release for the Ardbeg Committee
On the nose: British fruit pudding, cedar wood and the scent of a cigar box. Oak tannins with truffles follow and reveal subtle notes of smoked jam tarts. With a dash of water, intense aromas of bitter cherries with spices appear and turn into a wonderful fragrant bouquet of violets.
On the palate: A velvety mouthfeel drives the palate into a complex symphony of contrasting aromas. Anise, soot and summer fruits – such as cherries, strawberries, apricots and pears – pave the way to notes of shortbread biscuits, dark chocolate, coffee and almonds.
Finish: A long-lasting, smoky-sooty finish
