Ardbeg 21 year Old
The recently announced Ardbeg Twenty One sold out almost immediately and i'm seriously grateful to be able to review it here.
At £310 a bottle this is not an everyday purchase and is definitely on the higher side of the price points for this age, but it is a damn good dram.
Full of sweet creamy smoke, lemon and lemongrass like notes and a malty background when it settles, this is a dram that needs time to work with but that rewards your patience in spades.
Not available to buy direct any more, try keeping an eye on the auctions but i expect it to be raising a fair amount.
Thanks again to Ardbeg for the official Sample.
soft and gentle creamy smoke, almost one of those smoked creams you get in a posh restaurant, then fresh lemons, coal tar soap, hints of creosote and a splash of golden honey roast vegetables, some Arbroath smokies in there too with fresh lemon juice drizzled over
fizzy and sherbety initially, smoked kippers and lemon sole in a creamy fish pie, fresh lemon juice, honey roast garden vegetables, coal tar soap, hints of creosote, still lots of fresh citrus notes though, softens as you sip through the glass, becomes quite mellow and easy to sip and enjoy
long lasting fizzy finish.
