Ardbeg "Galileo" / NAS Year Old

Rating: Not Rated Yet Manufacturer: Distillery Email
  • Description
  • Reviews
Highly anticipated 2012 release of Ardbeg - the casks used for this vatting were mostly distilled in 1999 and some of them previously contained Marsala wine, imparting a pleasant sweet tropical fruitiness. The name Galileo was given to this malt in celebration of Ardbeg sending some of it’s new make spirit in casks into space to see how it matures. Bottled at 49%
 
Appearance: Clear, light coppery amber.
Aroma: Dried apricot fruit, Christmas cake and Christmas spice with clove infused linseed oil and faint toffee/fudge.
Taste: Rich, fruity and spicy with just enough dry sandlewood, bitter almond and tea-like tannins to add balance and depth.
Aftertaste: Long, rich, spiced finish. Overall just a tad too spicy but a most pleasing dram all the same.
