- ABV 58.7%
One of a new collection of seriously fun whiskies produced by Specialty Drinks to celebrate Islay. The series is produced by vatting several barrels of whisky from a single distillery. Staff have tasted these whiskies informally and tell us no proper notes were taken because "they're for drinking, not thinking!" This is consistent with the plethora of whisky 'bloggers' all singing the same tune; these are bold, powerful and flavoursome whiskies - in some cases some of the most exciting and lively expressions released anywhere, anytime.
This Ar1 bottling comes from the Ardbeg distillery, owned and operated by luxury brands giant LVMH on the south-eastern coast of Islay. Ardbeg has been the most successful and popular of Islay's distilleries of late, and continues to re-invent the wheel with annual new releases; each fancier, flavoursome and more expensive than ever before. Ardbeg typically is medium to full bodied, powerfully peaty yet wonderfully complex. The peat takes the form of smoke and terracotta or damp soil notes, which usually play second fiddle to rich ripe fruits, the Ardbeg 'signature' being a toffee apple note.
This vatting is again, a 'full on' style, though closer in style to distillery bottlings than the other 'Elements' releases; big rich, classic Ardbeggian flavours wrapped around a generous, almost silky core. Bright, fresh and clean as a whistle. Great value.
Stocks of all three varieties are very limited. Due to the method employed when producing these whiskies, only very small quantities were produced, some whiskies from as few as nine casks.
No tasting notes available.
