Ardbeg Main Release

From a Distillery with more ups and downs that a pogoing punk comes Ardcore. Created with roasted black malt, roasted to the extreme, this spirit is all about what happens up front – centre stage. The malt is what defines its distinctive profile. Described as tasting like ‘biting on a spiky ball’, Ardcore is a dram that wears its heart on its sleeve… its black heart!

Notes of charcoal and sweet smoke make for an in-your-face nose, while potent notes of aniseed and dark chocolate stamp this bottle out as one fit only for the most Ardcore of fans.

Non chill-filtered at 46% ABV.

Ardbeg Ardcore is intense, and has all the powerful peatiness you expect of Ardbeg with notes of charcoal and sweet smoke plus a long, lingering finish. The addition of unconventional roasted black malt lends a sharpness to the flavour for a whisky that’s full of substance and attitude.

For a limited time only, orders will receive a complimentary Ardbeg Day t-shirt.

Tasting Notes

COLOUR

Pale Straw

NOSE

Fresh, floral, herbal & tart. Hints of mixed herbs and cedar wood. Very zesty, vibrant, hints of smoked orange & grapefruit, lots of menthol & peppermint. With water, powerful bursts of diesel oil, tar, fresh paint and aniseed. As this dies down, a memory of freshly cut hay, a touch of silage and the tiniest hint of something savoury, like yeast extract or bread dough.

TASTE

A lively, vibrant, sharp, ‘zingy’ texture, leading into very firm, distinctive flavours – malty/biscuit tones, powerful aniseed, cardamon, antiseptic lozenge, sweet mint toffee and cigar ash.

FINISH

Finally, a lingering, salty, firm aftertaste of mint, tar, oak tannin & leather.
