Ardbeg Dark Cove
We used this during an Islay tasting event recently and it shot to the head of the class. An absolute gem of a whisky. Showcasing Ardbegs classic fruit laden smokiness with just a hint of spice and a long toffee laden influence on the finish.
Dark Cove is a limited-edition whisky released on 28 May as part of the yearly Feis Ile celebrations. Matured in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks, this is smoky and spicy with a hint of sweetness. Toffee meets coal tar, squid ink noodles and toasted coffee, to leave a long and dark finish.
One of Ardbegs darkest secrets.
