Nose Smoked cinnamon and paprika, antique leather and saddle soap, with classic Ardbeg scents of pine resin, tar and briny sea spray in the background. Hint of a fragrant bonfire, and, finally, an unusual savoury note, like chilli-seasoned meats.
Taste Salty mouthfeel drifts into sweet toffee, vanilla popcorn, salted peaches with soot and tar. Distinctive savoury notes of smoky BBQ, paprika and mustard spice, fading into smoked pears and apples.
Finish Smoked paprika and bonfires with a mellow sweetness throughout.
Ardbeg Grooves has been laid down in wine casks, intensely charred to produce heavy grooves on the surface of the wood. The result is a whisky aromatic with smoked spices and distant bonfires, sweet vibes of vanilla popcorn and smoky soot fading into a mellow haze of apples, fresh flowers and smoked pear.
