A missing purifier. A dram forsaken. Heavy vapours will rise.

Things just got heavy in the Ardverse…

Something weird is going down at the Distillery. The legendary purifier – responsible for Ardbeg’s exalted balance – is nowhere to be seen. And this whisky is the consequence.

The harmony between peat and floral fruitiness has been disrupted. What have risen are the untamed darker flavours and notes, gathering and filling the senses. It is an ominous dram of dramatic, aromatic pungency.

PUNGENT earthiness fills the lungs. AROMATIC clouds  of DARKEST CHOCOLATE and SHARP PEPPERMINT ascend. ANISEED and POWDERY CINNAMON billow, while the tang of MENTHOL lingers.

Intimidating palls of SMOKE loom large with a lingering cloying sweetness. A burst of bittersweetness SURGES, disturbingly ashy coal DUST and casting a HAZE of cardamom. Mentholic eucalyptus ROLLS IN, OBSCURING the fruit and floral notes usually found at the heart of ARDBEG. In fact, this is the most FULL-BLOWN Ardbeg ever.
