About Ardbeg Heavy Vapours - Limited Release - 2023 - Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Limited Edition.

Ardbeg wash distilled without the purifier and matured in classic Ardbeg casks.

It is said that the merest whiff of classic Ardbeg  transports you to another time and place. However,  the aroma of this formidable smoky malt takes you to another dimension altogether. For it answers the  improbable question: how would Ardbeg be without  the pivotal influence of its legendary purifier?

Non chill-filtered and bottled at 46% ABV.

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Pale Straw.

Nose: Intense, pungent and aromatic, with a distinctive farmyard aroma, along with a crunchy aroma, like creosote or tarry rope. The smoke is all dominating, but has a slightly sweet edge to it, almost like dark chocolate. A splash of water opens the bouquet, with some dark chocolate cream, and a hint of smoked artichoke.

Palate: The mouthfeel is spicy/warming, with an initial burst of bittersweet flavours – coal dust, cardamon, peppermint, eucalyptus, and more dark chocolate with some coffee grits.
In the background there are some old-fashioned boiled sweets, like aniseed twists, cinnamon balls, and antiseptic lozenges.

Finish: The aftertaste lingers long and bold with an ongoing, almost anaesthetising sensation.
