Ardbeg Rollercoaster Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

$999.00 Bottle
  • ABV 57.3%

Exclusive to Ardbeg Committee members, Rollercoaster commemorates the 10th anniversary of the Committee which was started in 2000. Note: We have two bottles only to sell. The whisky is a mixture of ten casks of Ardbeg of differing ages and vintages, specifically:

1997: Second fill Barrel
1998: Refill Hogshead
1999: First Fill Barrel
2000: First Fill Barrel
2001: Refill Barrel
2002: Refill Barrel
2003: First Fill Barrel
2004: First Fill Barrel
2005: Second Fill Sherry Butt
2006: Refill Hogshead

Tasting note: Pale gold colour with very pale straw hue. Typically multifaceted Ardbeg nose. Sweet peat, lanolin and chocolate fudge cookie interchange places with menthol and sweet roasted meat-like aromas. Warm and slightly hot entry packs a punch as flavours of sweet tarry smoke, roasted cereals, baked citrus and fennel unfold. Drying, tingly mouthfeel. A little out of balance at natural strength. Finishes quite dry with a smokey vanilla aftertaste followed by flavours of liquorice all sorts and a lingering, though faint, fried bacon sweetness. 57.3% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Deep gold color. Very bold aroma of toffee, dark chocolate, diesel fuel-soaked soil, smoldering campfire, coal tar, clove, leather, fig, and dark berried fruit. More of the same on the palate, with seaweed, smoked haddock, and cough drops emerging towards the finish. This whisky is very dynamic and exciting to drink. My only criticism: it comes across a little green on the finish, which keeps me from scoring it in the 90s. Still, it’s pretty impressive considering how young some of the whiskies in it are. If you like your Islay whiskies young and brooding, this one’s for you. 89 points - (2010 2nd Quarter (Vol. 19, #2)size>
