Ardbeg Ardcore Ardbeg Day 2022
Here we have the latest Ardbeg release – Ardcore. This is created with roasted black malt, roasted to the extreme Ardbeg say. The malt is what defines this distinctive flavour profile. Described as tasting like ‘biting on a spiky ball’ – interesting.
Ardcore is a smoky, rich single malt made using black malt. Heavily roasted in strictly-monitored kilns at super-high temperatures, the black malt used to make Ardcore has created aromas of toast and marmite, coffee grounds, garden herbs, bonfire smoke, charcoal and sticky molasses that fill the nose. The palate offers notes of cocoa powder, dark chocolate, peanut brittle, toffee, aniseed, barbecued lime, soot, bonfire smoke and malty biscuits throughout the palate and lingering in the finish.
