We are a huge fan of you and me and this was just as great. I may actually like it more. It was a bit peppery, which I love. Great nose. — 20 days ago
Golden amber color. Briny, diluted iodine, smoky, red fruit, floral and herbal notes on the nose. Warm mouthfeel. Hints of sherry and stewed fruits on the palate. — a month ago
Shláinte! Purchased in 1990 at the distillery and opened this year. After 40 years (1980) enticing aromas of smoky peat perfume fill my nose. Upon my palette the silky smooth whiskey caresses my tongue. Amazing experience! — 3 months ago
On the nose, floral and honey notes, heather, and the slightest hint of wood. The sweet honey predominates. On the palette, the same notes but with the addition of candied apricots, toasted coconut, and a hint of white chocolate, with oak coming through more than on the nose. Mostly wood on the finish. — a month ago
Very good! Kind of chocolote taste! — 2 months ago
Beautiful honey amber color. Elegant aromas of toffee, caramel, red apple, baking spice, oiled leather, and dried figs. Palate coating mouthfeel. Flavor profile expands upon the above with subtle citrus notes, honeycomb, and bitter chocolate. Water brings out the warmth of cream of wheat and other malted flavors. Long, luxurious finish. Excellent dram! — a month ago
Slightly cloudy, pale lemon green colour medium viscosity.
Medium - intensity, youthful, dry with honey suckle, pear, lemons, maybe a touch of peach.
Low tannins, medium + acid, low alcohol and light to medium body.
Medium - length, low to medium complexity. Honeysuckle, Unripe green apples, passionfruit and pineapples
Overall lovely bottle, easy to drink but the malic acid is just a bit overwhelming. Almost like eating jarheads. — 2 months ago
Down goes another Sunday,
special release to honor the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Ardbeg Committee, which is one of more than 140 on the island of Islay but has a global membership of more than 120,000. Distiller notes: "For the first time in Ardbeg’s history, we rounded up Pinot Noir casks from the country that lies the furthest distance from Islay – New Zealand, that other remote island nation where sheep have been known to outnumber the locals by 7:1. Ardbeg Blaaack knits together velvety summer fruit pudding and bitter cherry, with a deeper edge of soot and Ardbeg’s hallmark smoke. Perfect for toasting our legendary committee." — 2 months ago
