ARDBEG 14 ans 2005 The Story of the Wind & Wave Conquête


Quantity limited to 1 bottle.

The Ardbeg distillery produces the smokiest single malt in Scotland. In the past, the lack of ventilation in the malt drying kilns retained smoke from peat, thus explaining the very peaty character of its single malt. Ardbeg single malts combine rugged charm with great finesse and a wealth of expression worthy of the best whiskies. The true frenzy of enthusiasts for each expression of Ardbeg whisky means that its production is almost entirely dedicated to its single malt and not to blends.

Independent bottlings of Ardbeg are now extremely rare. All the more reason not to miss out on one when it comes our way. Peated, smoky, iodine, or salty, this version also reveals exotic fruits, citrus, and remarkably fresh herbal flavors, as well as lemony notes whose fragile character evokes that of sand flowing through one’s fingers.

Tasting Notes

Color : Bright gold.

Nose : Rich, concentrated. Very fine, the first nose is both peaty, ashy, herbaceous (cut hay), spicy (cloves, anise) and mineral (chalk). On aeration, the aromatic palette is adorned with exoticism (pineapple, passion fruit), heady perfumes (iris, lily) and vanilla scents. Then it becomes increasingly camphorous and cand (lemon, grapefruit).

Palate : Elegant, balanced. Very lactic (coconut, nuts), the attack on the palate gives voice to a rather dry peat covered in soot and lime. Very fresh, the mid-palate is green (chlorophyll), licorice (stick) and infused (black tea). Gourmet, the aftertaste offers to savor a vanilla flan, a rhubarb pie or a strawberry tart. Of course, everything is coated in a diaphanous smoke.

Finish : Long, silky. In the continuation of the aftertaste, the beginning of the finish is energized by the juice of green lemons and mint leaves. Gradually, the peat becomes both milky, fruity (pear, plum) and herbaceous (anise, fennel). In the retro-olfaction, flavors of crustaceans, iodine and seaweed mix well with cocoa beans and salted butter caramel. The empty glass restores aromas of cooked agave, artichoke bottom, straw and burned earth after the harvests.
