Ardbeg 17 Years Old 70cl
A tad less peaty than early bottlings, the classic Ardbeg 17yo is still a great whisky, but is sadly becoming very thin on the ground as demand increases and supply runs low - it's now a good few years since owners Glenmorangie discontinued it. The first bottling of this sparked the revival of Ardbeg's fortunes after the takeover by Glenmorangie.
Cask Type: Bourbon
Nose: Vaguely Salty and very complex with the oak present but very much in harness. Just a hint of bourbon and an even fainter hint of tangy orange.
Palate: Smokiness quickly hits the palate and then tapers off. Chewy malt alongside a touch of cocoa
Finish: Long lingering peat with licquorice and dry toast.
