About Ardbeg BizarreBQ Limited Edition - 2023 - Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Introducing Ardbeg BizarreBQ - the distillery's first ever barbecue-inspired whisky. With the help of bona-fide god of the grill, Christian Stevenson (AKA DJ BBQ), this mouth-watering malt was cooked up by Master Distiller, Bill Lumsden.

Matured in a combination of double charred oak casks, Pedro Ximinez sherry casks and Ardbeg's unique BBQ casks. Together they ignite a feast of aromas in hickory smoked ham, grilled artichokes, flamed steak and cinnamon dusted espresso.

Non chill-filtered and bottled at 50.2% ABV.

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Glowing Charcoal Embers.

Nose: Puffs of charcoal and soot mingle with smoky wood and aromatic herbs and spices. Treacle toffee, hickory smoked ham and cinnamon-dusted espresso rise up.

A splash of water releases distinctively sharp citrus aromas, along with herbal notes such as fennel and aniseed. Grilled artichokes and a suggestion of seared meat sizzle the senses. The undeniable
smell of bonfire and BBQ embers lingers in the background.

Palate: The mouthfeel is alive with spice, like BBQ ribs smothered in chilli. A myriad of deep, warming smoke follows close behind in flame-grilled steak, chilli oil, cured leather and clove. Ginger, aniseed
and tar crackle on the palate with an aromatic woodsmoke edge.

Finish: The massive, hot aftertaste lingers on and on, with more grilled artichoke, black olives and a sooty note that slowly simmers away.
