Lay claim to your own piece of Islay this festive season with our unique warehouse gift tin. Lift the lid on this iconic Islay building and you’ll find Ardbeg Ten Years Old sitting snug inside.
In an Islay time gone by, the bold letters emblazoned on the warehouse wall were once a signpost for supply ships headed towards the Distillery. Now when you see ‘ARDBEG’ it’s a signpost for you – to the perfectly balanced, untamed spirit of Islay.It’s not often you can tell people that you own your own warehouse full of whisky.
A burst of intense smoky fruit escapes into the atmosphere of peat infused with zesty lemon and lime, wrapped in waxy dark chocolate. Bold menthol and black pepper slice through the sweet smoke followed by tarry ropes and graphite. Savour the aroma of smoked fish and crispy bacon alongside green bell peppers, baked pineapple and pear juice.
Aroma: Add water and an oceanic minerality brings a breath of cool, briny seaspray. Waxed lemon and lime follows with coal tar soap, beeswax and herby pine woodlands. Toasted vanilla and sizzling cinnamon simmer with warm hazelnut and almond toffee.
Taste: An explosion of crackling peat sets off millions of flavour explosions: peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. Then comes a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants. Smoke gradually wells up on the palate bringing a mouthful of warm creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows. As the taste lengthens and deepens, dry espresso, liquorice root and tarry smoke develop coating the palate with chewy peat oilsFinish: The finish goes on and on a long and smoky with tarry espresso, aniseed, toasted almonds and traces of soft barley and fresh pear."
