Ardbeg Ardcore Islay Single Malt Scotch whisky
ardbeg ardcore single malt, is a non-age-statement single malt Scotch whisky made from dark roasted malted barely. Ardbeg’s head of distilling and whisky creation, Dr. Bill Lumsden, describe the ardcore flavour as tasting like biting on a spiky ball. He elaborated saying. Ardcore is a dram that wears its heart on its sleeve its black heart! Created with roasted black malt, burnt to hair-raising levels, this spirit is all about substance.
Nose: Showing spicyness, Ardcore celebrates a veritable moshpit in the glass with nuances of marmite, charred toast and black chicory coffee. Like a safety pin in the nose, the typical Ardbeg herbal notes are present, while smoky notes of blazing campfire and molasses buzz in the background.
Taste: A stunningly spicy and fiery taste ignites with more rich and smoky flavours. Cocoa powder, dark chocolate, peanut toffee, smoked lime and hints of soot and campfire embers in unison. Anise and malt biscuits come to the fore and rivet through all taste buds.
Finish: All in all a sweet finish. Long-lasting notes of toffee, soot and smoke provide an anarchic, exquisite aftertaste.
