  2. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS CH Autumn 2001 list:

    Canned pears and tar soap
    The distillery has the largest capacity of any Scottish malt distillery - its twenty-three stills theoretically produce 22 million liters - but has never worked at full capacity. Did you ever wonder what happens when you make a Speyside with heavily beaten barley? Here is the answer! This bottling comes from an "experimental" barrel. The barley was made according to Islay-style, the distilled whisky to Speyside customs. The result is intriguing, and if you feel like leading your friends down the ice during a blind tasting, give them this whisky! He is pale golden and comes from a refilled Hogshead. The first scent combines powdered sugar and peat smoke, and this develops with the addition of water towards canned pears (classic Speyside style) and tar soap (classic Islay). The taste continues the fragrance themes: sweet, smoky and properly peppered. A powerful, warming whisky and at the same time a real curiosity.
