Ardbeg BlaaacK – Committee 20th Anniversary Release

For information about free postal entries click here

Created for the 2020 Feis Ile that never was, this is currently Rob’s favourite Ardbeg and what’s not to like, look at these tasting notes!

Official Tasting Notes

Nose – Baked summer fruit pudding, Cedar wood/cigar box, smoky jam tarts, oak tannins, truffles. With water an intense ‘bitter cherry’ scent, a curious salty/savoury note, and then some lovely, perfumed violet notes.

Palate – A velvety/mouth furring texture leads into delicious symphony of contrasting flavours — savory & sweet and the same time. Aniseed & soot, summer fruits (cherries, strawberry’s, apricots and pears), pastry/cake mix, dark chocolate, coffee and more bitter cherries and almond.

Finish – A long lingering sooty finish.

Released to mark twenty years of the Ardbeg Committee, this expression has been matured in Pinot Noir wine casks from New Zealand.
