Strictly one bottle per household. Attempts at multiple purchases will be reimbursed and not sent.
Nose: Spicy, savoury and “grippy” with an explosion of savoury Marmite/yeast, burnt toast and charcoal and chicory (camp coffee) infused coffee grounds. The classic Ardbeg herbal/fennel top note is present but very much in the background of all the swirling, smoky bonfire and molasses notes.
Palate: An astonishing, spicy, fiery palate leads into an explosion of rich, powerful flavours – cocoa powder, rich dark chocolate, peanut brittle toffee, smoked lime and a suggestion of soot and bonfire embers.
Finish: There is lots of liquorice/aniseed, along with some altogether sweeter, malty/biscuit flavours, and a long, lingering treacle toffee aftertaste.
