Ardbeg Scorch Committee Release Single Malt Whisky

Part of the Committee Release, Ardbeg Scorch was released to celebrate Ardbeg Day 2021 and Islay’s ‘definitely real and totally not made-up flavour breathing dragon’, a dragon said to inhabit Islay as the legend goes. This Limited Edition was matured in their most heavily charred ex-bourbon American oak casks.

    Nose:    Frightening, intense aromas of soot and smoke. Hints of aniseed and fragrant patchouli are intertwined with strong notes of hardened steel and saddle soap.

    Taste:    With one sip, an abundance of aromas opens up. Oily, meaningful with a cloud of sweet smoke and kite-charred oak. Grilled food is interwoven with notes of black liquorice and medicinal lozenges.

    Finish:    A long and heroic finale, with a light, tarry aftertaste that stretches happily and far to the end.
