A few months ago there was a new Ardbeg release: Ardbeg Twenty One. The bottle is sold exclusively to the comittee members of Ardbeg and as it goes with their limited releases, the Ardbeg Twenty One was sold out in no time. On sale for £ 310 it was quite expensive. Let’s see if it’s worth the price..
This Ardbeg has matured in ex-bourbon casks and is bottled at 46% ABV.
Ardbeg Twenty One tasting notes:
Nose: smoke, hay and yoghurt. Now this sounds weirder then it actually is, all topped with some sugar. The sourness for me is quite dominant, but I also get some nice fruits in there with some herbs. A lemony touch which is fighting with the sourness / yoghurt. After a while I get also more of a plastic smell to it.
