Ardbeg Auriverdes

Ardbeg Auriverdes

Official bottling
Single malt - Islay
49.9% ABV

Nose: Honey, applesauce, stewed pears, smoke, molasses, hints of red grapes. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, airy, watery around the edges, slightly fizzy. 
Tasting: Bitter sweet Ginseng, apples, smoke, honey, brown paper, hints of pomegranates. 
Finish: Long. Ginseng, stewed pears, applesauce, honey, smoke. 


Whisky tasting note number 700! And it's a... well, not classic, but a famous one. Issued to commemorate the 2014 World Cup in Brazil (Auriverdes, gold and green, geddit?), it's overpriced of course. But it's really quite tasty, with lots of fruit and sweet honeyed smoke, and a hard, bitter edge underneath. Easy drinking Ardbeg!


I like this a lot.
