Ardbeg Auriverdes Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 49.9% abv
Ardbeg Auriverdes Single Malt Whisky has been distilled with equal measures of skill and passion. Ardbeg Auriverdes - the name coming from; golden whisky (auri), unmistakeable green bottle (verde) - is destined to be the star of Ardbeg Day this year. The dram is rumoured to be a bit of a hot head on account of its toasted cask lids. The Ardbeg team is renowned for its technical expertise and Auriverdes is a winning example of this, with the toasted lids producing a mocha coffee flavour at one end, flowing into creamy vanilla at the other - it is truly a dram of two halves.
Nose: Tarry and herbal notes with hints of mocha.
Palate: Ground coffee yields to cured bacon and blends to warm smoked salmon.
Finish: Lingering with smoky vanilla.
