Ardbeg Grooves Single Malt Whisky

Ardbeg Grooves Single Malt Whisky

$182.00
$163.80

Description

The 2018 limited edition Ardbeg Day release from the famed Islay distillery – Ardbeg Grooves has arrived in limited quantities.

Inspired by the free spirits of the ‘60s and described by the distillery themselves as “intensely mellow”, this has been crafted from their “grooviest casks ever”. Those casks in question are heavily toasted ex-red wine casks, the heavy char opening up the barrels with deeper “grooves” than normal.

In real terms that brings out more wood spice as the whisky penetrated further into the oak.

On allocation in Australia.

Official tasting notes:

Nose: Intense aromas of smoked cinnamon and paprika, antique leather and saddle soap, with classic Ardbeg scents of pine resin, tar and briny sea spray in the background. A distant hint of a fragrant bonfire by the shores of the distillery and, finally, an unusual savoury note, like chilli-seasoned meats. A little splash of water releases some beautiful, unexpected aromas: lavender scented soap, ground white pepper, floral and herbal notes entwined. Fresh flowers mix with coriander leaves and mint.

Palate: A powerfully salty mouthfeel drifts into sweet vibes of treacle toffee, vanilla popcorn, salted fruits (peaches) with soot and tar. Again, those distinctive savoury notes of smoky BBQ, paprika and mustard spice, fading into an unexpected haze of smoked pears and apples, almost like pear cider.

Finish: Smoked paprika and bonfires with a mellow sweetness throughout.
