Ardbeg Blaaack Islay Single Malt Committee 20th Anniversary Limited Edition 700mL
Ardbeg Blaaack Islay Single Malt Committee 20th Anniversary Limited Edition - Ardbeg Day is here May 30th 2020, where we see Ardbeg release a special bottling. Blaaack (released to to the Committee on the 3rd of March), celebrating the 20th anniversary of their committee members who are affectionately considered "black sheep members - known for their peaty passion and maverick attitude”. This black translucent bottle is alluring, decorated with sheep, as a nod to the members. This whisky was also aged in Pinot Noir barrels from New Zealand, where the population is said to be out numbered 7 to 1 by sheep.
Ardbeg Blaaack is a single malt scotch with the distilleries distinct peat flavour. 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. 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. A long-lasting, smoky-sooty finish.
