Ardbeg Ardbog Review

Ardbeg Ardbog Part of a short series on Ardbeg whiskies

Third and final Ardbeg for this short series of reviews is the new Ardbeg Ardbog, coming out on Ardbog Day, which is the 1st June 2013, this limited release has had some of its contents in a Manzanilla Sherry Cask and the influence is clear to taste.

The trademark peat and earth notes are still there but there's a real fruity note that mixes with it, if you can manage to grab a bottle of this then do so, you will not be disappointed.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

the nose kicks off straight from the bottle with a huge hit of peat smoke and coal soot, then the nose goes really sweet underneath with a sweet thick winey nose, there's a lovely sweet mixed fruit jam nose with a bit of manuka honey and creme brule finishing off the nose.

Palate

really quite smooth and sweet, with coal soot in there along with mixed crushed nuts and dried fruits

Finish

becomes quite nutty and gritty, lovely though
