Extra info about the whisky

Ardbeg Scorch, 2021 Committee Release - 51.7% Color: Rich Gold Nose: Jammy fruits and of course coal gas. Immediately reminiscent of the early 90s Ardbegs for me. Diesel fumes slowly gain momentum the longer you nose. Lemon sherbets take over for a bit. Hints of wood spice. Beautiful. Palate: Good mouthfeel albeit a bit thinner. Spicy peppers, almost Talisker like chili peppers too. You have that wonderful lemony cake icing type of taste in the backend. There’s also a herbal bitterness present, possibly from the oak charring. The flavors sort of dilute with water (oh wait…) Finish: Medium. There’s the oak bitterness that lingers on. With water, the lemon zest flavors shine through more with less marked bitterness. Balance: Good body, spirit and cask are harmonious. A bit thin and water throws the whisky off in the palate but enhances the finish. Overall: This is the best Ardbeg I’ve had in a while. In amongst the experimental madness they’ve managed to produce an intellectual whisky replete with some old school character I adore. There is a bit of richness in the body and finish that is missing that drags down rest of the experience. I might give it higher points later, but this is damn tasty dram. If you like fruits and peat mixed up, look no further.
