Description

This beautiful bottle has, at its heart, three purposes.

Firstly, to honour our forefathers who cherished their community and created the High Cross of Kildalton. This enduring monument, carved by ancient hands in 750 A.D., stands today under the protection of generations past and future, testament to the craftsmen who gifted their legacy to us.

Secondly, the malt is about creating a legacy with our partner, His Royal HIghness’s North Highland Initiative. The Initiative has the objective of promoting and strengthening the people, places and products of the rural areas of Scotland.

Lastly, we hope that this unique whisky offers you, its owner, a memorable and unique taste of Ardbeg to enjoy with your friends.

Bottled at 46% abv.

Non chill filtered

 

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep gold

Nose: A beautiful seductive, exotic bouquet with hints of smoked apricots in syrup, salt and pepper seasoning, and some soft, creamy vanilla. This leads to a symphony of smoky and herbal notes, like woodsmoke, tar, menthol and fennel. A little water releases more volatile top notes, like pine resin, vetiver root, coriander, liquorice, and curious soapy notes.

Palate: Soft and sappy, gently coating the tongue. The explosion of firm, robust, flavours is unquestionably Ardbeg – coal tar, soap, aniseed, peppermint, espresso coffee, sweet barley malt, and a lingering aromatic smokiness.

Finish: A lovely length that is both fresh, with menthol, and spicy, with hints of allspice, clove, and bitter almonds, finally revealing a distant vanilla essence sweetness.
