    Ardbeg 2011 Cote Rotie Cask #2323 Embassy Exclusive

    A single cask of Ardbeg whisky from Islay, matured for 8 years in a wine barrique which previously held Côte-Rôtie wine. Distilled on 22nd August 2011 and bottled on 28th July 2020 exclusively for Ardbeg embassies around the world, this cask produced only 304 bottles.

    Official Tasting Notes by Dr Bill Lumsden

    Nose : Deep, pungent and salty, with medicinal notes, dark chocolate, brambly fruit and the tiniest hint of vanilla. A splash of water brings out a flinty minerality, along with pungent floral notes like narcissus or lilies. As the bouquet continues to open up, the classic, smoky Ardbeg character starts to build.

    Palate : The mouthfeel is full and rounded. The primary flavour is bold and svaoury, with deep peat smoke, a curious rubbery note, and the suggestion of smoked cocoa powder. There is a soft oiliness throughout, with crunchy oak tannins and a touch of clove and nutmeg. The aftertaste lingers with salted peanuts, dark chocolate cream and a touch of coal tar.
