Ardbeg Kelpie

Havet omkring Ardbeg rummer utallige legender og mystiske havskabninger.

Kelp tangområderne langs Islays kyst huser meget andet end fisk, der svømmer blandt søtangen. Rygterne siger, at mystiske Selkies (havfruer), frygtindgydende tangskabninger og formskiftende Kelpies, fra tid til anden, er opstået fra dybet for at jagte landsbyboere og intetanende rejsende…

"Its powerful aromas of oily peat, salty seaweed and tarry rope have been produced by virgin oak casks from the Black Sea, intermingled with the hallmark Ardbeg flavour profile. Waves of spicy black pepper give way to a delectable tide of bacon and dark chocolate. Incredibly deep."

Noter (Ardbeg):

Colour: Burnished Gold

Nose: A wonderful, intense, ‘dancing’ nose, with lots of different, intertwined aromas – powerful, oily peat, dark chocolate, smoked fish, hints of seaweed, and a curious, sharp herbal note.  Waves of spicy, black pepper.

A splash of water brings forth some classic Ardbeg notes, such as creamy coffee, smoked fudge and pine resin. Even some hints of smoked coconut.

Taste: A peppery mouthfeel is followed by a crescendo of rich flavours.  Treacle toffee, Turkish coffee, smoky bacon and lots of dark, dark chocolate.  A curious burst of peachy, estery fruit, hickory wood, clove oil and a suggestion of black olives on the aftertaste.

Finish: Seemingly lasting forever, with deep, deep, almost subterranean flavours of clove, tar and rich toffee.
