Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Perpetuum

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.32 points

  1. DrBardamu scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Perpetuum was released on Ardbeg Day 2015 (officially May 30th, 2015), which also happened to be the 200th anniversary of Ardbeg’s founding. Perpetuum is composed of both ‘very old and very young whiskies,’ which have been aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. As a result, the whisky has a straw gold appearance with classic aromas of dark chocolate, peat smoke and salty sea air.

  3. peterjpvanas scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Colour: Amber edging to Caramel, long slow legs

    matured in Bourbon and Sherry casks
    Nose: a clear smoke fragrance, maybe bitumen and the sweetish of chocolate, a bit of wood and nuts. Also a whiff of citrus (light). I expected it to be a more smokey dram. A bit of vanilla. but less pronounced than the Sherry notes.Taste: here the smoke/peat comes more to the foreground. Quite strong flavours, but nicely balanced. A bit of coastal brine/salty water, some spics; cinnamon? vanilla comes through but is suppressed. hints of barbecueFinish: pleasant balanced lingers onBottle: the typical ARDBEG bottle and image
