Distillery

Ardbeg Distillery is on the south coast of the isle of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, in the Inner Hebrides group of islands. The distillery claims to produce the peatiest Islay whisky and uses malted barley sourced from the maltings in Port Ellen. It is one of the fastest growing Islay distilleries. Ardbeg whisky is considered to be amongst the peatiest in the world, and certainly the core expression, Ardbeg 10 Year Old, is the peatiest standard expression from any whisky distillery with phenol content of 24ppm.

 

House Style: earthy, very peaty, smoky, salty and robust.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Michael Jackson

Nose: Intensely smoky. Dry, clean, tangy smoke. Like standing downwind of the barbecue while steaks are char-grilled on the beach.

 

Palate: Firm, very smooth, then explodes on the tongue.

 

Finish: Hot. Alcoholic. A shock to the system.

 

Comment: The elemental opposite of the sophisticated Lord of the Isles.
