Ardbeg 2004 14 Year Old

Adelphi, Ardbeg 2004 14 Year Old

RRP £299

Ardbeg is one of the iconic single malts of Islay, though only recently revived in the 1990s by Mo√ęt Hennessy. Finding new single casks of Ardbeg is notoriously hard. This whisky has plenty of salted caramel and coastal freshness; touches of brine and white pepper. On the palate it is oily, with unrefined vanilla. The woody notes are those of driftwood, and there is a little honey lingering in the background. The finish is ashy, but has sweetness as well.
