ARDBEG 1991 ARTIST #13 OVER 30 Spirits Shop Selection

$4,800.00

Founded in 1815, the Ardbeg distillery was dormant from 1981 to 1987. It was acquired in 1997 by the Glenmorangie Plc Company, which undertook significant renovation work. Distilled at a time when the distillery only produced for two months a year, this version reveals this prestigious single malt from the Isle of Islay in an extremely elegant light. Wonderfully matured, all the notes in its aromatic and gustatory palette have over time acquired a purity of expression that is almost poetic, enhanced by a rich, earthy, and licorice-laden peat.

Tasting Notes


Colour
: Vivid gold.

Nose : Fine, complex. At first scent, an autumnal (dead leaves, dried seaweed) and roasted peat (nuts) provides a lot of refinement to the aromatic palette. With aeration, it enriches itself with noble smoked scents (ashes), floral (vetiver), fruity (orange, mango), and medicinal (aspirin) fragrances.

Palate : Full, delicate. With flavors of cooked strawberry, candied ginger, and gentian root, the mouthfeel is at the same time very mineral. Emphatically smoky (camphor, sandalwood), the mid-palate evolves into an enchanting floral register (wilted rose, pansy, carnation).

Finish : Long, substantial. In the mouth, orange zest, cloves, and salted butter caramel accompany elegant malty and peaty flavors. The aftertaste reveals heady flowers (lily, iris), making it indulgent.
