A coastal walk in summer – lots of tiny flowers in bloom and stealing tart berries off bushes with a tang of seaspray in the air. With a touch of water it all settles down in to rich custard, vanilla and apple sponge and a zesty finish.

Take this whisky and hide it well. For its heart has been matured in dark sherry casks, imparting waves of treachle toffee, coal tar, squid ink noodles and toasted coffee grounds. The darkest Ardbeg ever.View ProductArdbeg Dark Cove70cl / 46.50% ABV£150.00 Out of stock
Bacon straight away, but that then fades and gives way to warm bonfire, sweet tobacco and just a note of rubber. With more time in the glass treacle, cereal and pleasant soapiness. The palate is lead by sweet fruit and honey, then peppery heat, and an oily, woodsmoke finish. A complex and evolving whisky.View ProductArdbeg Uigeadail70cl / 54.20% ABV£57.99
