Ardbeg Blaaack Islay single malt Scotch whisky. Limited edition release for the Ardbeg Committee 2020.
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.
