Ardbeg presents a new 13-year-old single malt born out of necessity, as the current press release explains: Ardbeg Fermutation. When whisky production came to a standstill in November 2007 due to a boiler breakdown, the wort had to stay in the wash backs much longer than usual. And if you have to experiment, then do it right, said Dr. Bill Lumsden, Ardbeg’s Director of Distillery and Whisky Creation, and had the lids of the washbacks opened.
Bottled at 49.4% abv.
Non Chill Filtered
Nose: Fresh, floral, herbaceous and powerful. Hints of mixed herbs and cedar wood. Very sparkling, lively, with notes of smoked orange and grapefruit, lots of menthol and peppermint.
Palate: A lively, vibrant, ‘sparkling’ texture that culminates in very bold, distinct flavours – malty tones of biscuit, bold aniseed, cardamom, antiseptic lozenges, sweet mint toffee and cigar ash.
Finish: A lingering, salty, powerful finish of mint, tar, oak tannin & leather.
