Ardbeg Perpetuum 47.4%
Ardbeg Perpetuum 47.4% is deep amber in colour. The aromas are mellow, rich and enticing, with the unmistakable Ardbeggian combination of tar, soot and pine resin.
This leads into dark chocolate, treacle toffee, coffee grinds and a distant, nutty/ oaky note.
A splash of water initiates a burst of fresh, briny sea-spray with a hint of salt, some linseed oil, and then some more of the classic Ardbeg pine resin/ lime top note.
Ardbeg Perpetuum 47.4% has a remarkably fresh bouquet for such a peaty whisky. The taste is intense, robust peat smoke, savoury smoky bacon, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also an incredible creamy, sweet vanilla/milk chocolate note, which soothes the palate.
The never-ending aftertaste sees more linseed oil (a hint of the Sherry Casks in the recipe), some creosote and tar, but understated, and always gentle.
On the occasion of 200 years of the Ardbeg distillery, they launched Ardbeg Perpetuum 47.4% It’s a mix of “very old” and young Ardbeg, from both bourbon barrels and sherry casks.
Dramatically perched on the southern edge of the island of Islay, surrounded by treacherous seas and battered by strong winds, Ardbeg Distillery has produced one of the heaviest and peatiest malts likely to be encountered.
The distillery in its current form was founded by the MacDougall family (with John MacDougall being the most prominent). In 1997, the distillery was acquired by Glenmorangie plc who have invested heavily in the distillery.
To feel the true spirit of Ardbeg, visit the Distillery. Stand on the grassy mound that rises between the buildings and the sea.
The sight of the pagoda roofs crowning white-washed walls before you; the sound of waves surging onto the rocks behind you; the smell of malt and seaspray all around you.
Breathe it in. This is pure Islay. Where Ardbeg is, has been and always will be made by people genuinely devoted to producing The Ultimate Islay Malt.
Ardbeg the whisky is Ardbeg the place, in all its raw natural beauty.
