Ardbeg’s 2015 release is Perpetuum which celebrates its 200 anniversary. The style and make up of this malt is a culmination of the distilleries history and styles over the years. It contains some old Ardbeg, some very young, spiced casks, some Bourbon casked, sherry casked and some refilled barrels along with two secret styles which they will not declared.
Distillery Tasting note : Intense, robust peat smoke, savoury smoky bacon, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also an incredible creamy, sweet vanilla/milk chocolate note, which soothes the palate. The never-ending aftertaste, sees more linseed oil (a hint of the sherry casks in the recipe), some creosote and tar, but understated, always gentle.
