    I had this extraordinary Scotch at the first single cask dinner at Ardbeg distillery on Islay last week.
    I'm not a big fan of tasting notes, so does everyone has it's own taste but for me it was a very special moment and a very special dram.

    To be honest. I was very skeptical before, because I don't like the way of marketing Ardbeg did the last years. I like the old Arbeg design. Dark, artless, simple! All these colored etiquettes to attract the mass-marked is kind of a repellent to me.

    But what Ardbeg did with this single cask scotch is absolutely from the heart of Islay!
    Chenin Blanc Barrel! WOW!
    Still can see all the smiles of the group after tasting it.

    We enjoyed this malt on Feis Ile day 2019 for the little get together at the new stillhouse. You can tell LVMH got access to great wine casks. Wow what an incredible combination of dark fruits, wine notes, sweetness and bitter chocolate in harmony and a layer of Ardbeg peat all over.
    The group really loved this malt.
