Aus meiner Sicht eine der besseren "Special Releases" -Abfüllungen von Ardbeg. 


Abgesehen davon bin ich auch großer Manzanilla-Fan.


Der Ardbog beginnt spannend mit Aromen wie frisch aufgebrühtem Espresso, etwas Brackwasser, verbranntes Gummi, altes Leder, Tabaknoten und die typische Ardbegnoten.  Zum Ende hin saftige Orangen und überreife Kirschen sowie ein wenig Nelke. Zum Schluss dann noch ein Dieseldampfhammer;-)


Im Mund dann eine Explosion und Rauch und roten Früchten. Die Ardbegsüße springt gleich hinterher. Immer wieder pralle reife Pflaumen, Würze und die oben genannten Kirschen im Wechselspiel. Etwas Kaffee und Karamell sowie Toffee zum Schluss.


Langer leicht trockener und etwas holziger Abgang mit viel Rauch und Asche.


Ich bin wieder begeistert. Meine aktuelle Reihenfolge:

Alligator - Ardbog- Day- Galileo - Dark Cove - Kelpie - Auriverdes - Perpetuum

Color
Burnished
Nose

Salty, maritime, peat and smoke mixed with fruits (cherry probably). I notice again the white chocolate note I found in Galileo and Nectar D'Or. Great.

Taste

Manzanilla barrels turn it into the driest and saltiest whisky ever. Very spicy. But there is room for some sweet notes too.

Finish

Hot. Very hot. Dry, short and smoky. Habano mouthfeel.

Comments

The feis ile 2013 was great. This Ardbog is very interesting release and was affordable at that time. The manzanilla gives it character. Tried neat.

Nose: Subtle smoke with  some uncommon sweetness: cherries and and dried plums, mixed together with some coffee and grilled meats. Also after a while a bit glue-rubbery offnotes, but not in a way unpleasant.

Taste: more smoke in the mouth than the nose gave away. still the cherries and dried plums are present. Also a bit salty. After a while it becomes quite dry.

Finish: a mix of smoke, dryness and a dark chocolate drops filled with cherry filling.

Quite a nice expression. Happy to have tasted it.
