Ardbeg "Airgh Nam Biest" / NAS Year Old

Rating: Not Rated Yet Manufacturer: Distillery Email
  • Description
  • Reviews
A legendary discontinued distillery bottling released in 2008. Unfortunately there is not much information of what this vatting consists of, however it is extremely good and highly sought after. A must have for every connoisseur. Bottled 46%. 
 
Producer’s Tasting Notes:
Nose: The initial impression is of eating Ardbeg ice cream on the beach – the combination of sea spray, creamy vanilla ice cream infused with hints of peat oil, finished with a drizzle of gooey fudge sauce. Cutting through this luscious sweetness is an exciting assortment of fennel and pine nuts, zesty limes and sherbet with a touch of geranium leaves and lavender.
Taste: Definitely Ardbeg on the taste with peat, seaweed bonfire smokiness. Crispy smoky bacon, maple syrup and antiseptic lozenges leave a peppery and oily feel on the palate. Sweet and fruity flavours of ripe autumn fruits and chocolate limes emerge as notes of black coffee, liquorice and reminders of parma violets linger in the background.
Finish: Long on the finish with dried peat and creamy notes.
