Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Perpetuum

- Very reserved and elegant, but still offers a lot of flavors and is a lot of fun. Has so many unusual flavors in it, which are also very interesting in the combination. For me the best special bottling of the last years and offers a counterpoint to the normal range. Would be great if it were the more common, I would also buy quite well.
Mild, cereals, light smoke, margarine, some honey and vanilla, light citrus and minty notes
Smoke, a little vanilla, slightly bitter, lots of ash, some cereals, some lime, very fresh
the smoke is gone quickly, ashes, slightly bitter, but only traces of oak, overall quite short. At the very end, the oak gets stronger.
- Beautiful Ardbeg for the 200th distillery birthday. Not the big hit, but the special kick is missing. But the distillery character is fully there, and the then issue price (70 GBP?) Is absolutely fine.
At first restrained in the nose, lurking. Acts teen. Lemon smoke, slightly sour. Vanilla works its way forward and mixes with the lemon, intensifying it. Also, the smoke component is now stronger and ashen.
On the tongue now heavy smoke with cold-cigarette-in-ashtray feeling. Beautiful lemon note, which now, even if one sniffs again in between, has become much more intense in the nose. Lots of salt and dried algae, machine oil and boiling tar. Permanently ashen and dry, puts furry on the tongue.
Medium long, still with strong smoke, ashen and lemony, some milk chocolate.
- wonderful…expensive…but still wonderful
dark fruits, salty sea, smoke, farmy, butter, grass, rich honey, malt, grains
richly sweet, smoky, wonderful spiciness, chocolate cake, salted nuts, unflavored seaweed, coffee and cream
long, fruity, dry, citrus, intense spicy smoke, brine, grass, minerals and grains at the back followed by nutty sweet bitterness and long briny coastal breeze
N: Buttery, salted sweet [sandwich] pickle, pomegranate syrup, some farm notes - its all here.
T: A combo of youth & age, rather unlike the standard release. US oak provides the platform for a sweet-fresh herbal allium profile - presented overall with a soft touch.
F: Sweet raisins & splintered vanilla - again displaying a considered balance of youth & age.
C: Nice enough, the age combo working rather well. Scores 86 which [pleasingly] i see now is the same score I gave it last time.Scores a B[-]
- Not bad young Ardbeg, very similar to the standard ten, yes, in some places better, slightly deeper and more clearly in details, but the general impression - the mole is not so far gone from the ten as its price tag, I see no reason to spend money on this product if available in the lineup dozens and guessed with a currerecan, which, I recall, is an "improved" version. In general, the last annual releases of Ardbeg release as an artist / writer on a contract with the studio, the quality of "from ... to" - if only every year there was an occasion for a press release and work for marketers stamping the newfangled "whisky with history."
Open, dry, burned wood, smoked meat, bandages, cleaners, dry peat, lemon peel, ash.
Medium density, peat, coal, peppery wave, sweet-watery notes, lemon peel.
Spicy, charcoal, scorched branches, residual pepper, a little sweetness, lemon rind
- The perpetual is definitely underestimated.
Meaty smoke, greasy, blazing fire, deep red fruit, at this the Ardbeg citrus note gradually passes and becomes more and more dominant, at the same time it becomes peatier, more maritime and saltier, at the end a quite typical Ardbeg
Sweet, malty, slightly smoky, citrus fruit, slightly dry overall, fresh and peppery mouthfeel, oak is there and very well built
Slight oak bitterness, the smoke rears up briefly, the citrus notes remain as expected long, the oak remains the constant factor and holds the mouth in the mouth firmly
