Ardbeg Ardcore Committee Release 50.1%

£140.83

Ardbeg distillery presents Ardbeg Ardcore Committee Release 50.1%, released in 2022. There were an unknown number of bottles in this release.

This whisky has a unique nose of spice and savoury, ardcore grips the senses, with waves of marmite, burnt toast, chicory charcoal and infused coffee grounds making for a mosh pit in the glass. like a safety pin through the septum, a classic ardbeg herbal top note is present, while swirling, smoky bonfire and molasses loiter backstage, complimented by a jaw dropping spicy and fiery mouthfeel leading to an explosion of rich, smoky flavours – cocoa powder, dark chocolate, peanut brittle toffee, smoked lime and a suggestion of soot and bonfire embers all pogo in unison on the palate. amped up aniseed and malty biscuit elbow their way to the fore, “punk-turing” taste buds on the palate, and topped off by a an altogether sweeter finish, long, lingering notes of treacle toffee, soot and smoke make for an anarchic, but delicious, aftertaste finish.

Description

Ardbeg Ardcore Committee Release 50.1%

Ardbeg

The distillery can be found in a small cove on the south coast of Islay. It was in 1815 that the distillery was established and founded by John McDougal. Despite going on to sell in 1838, Ardbeg continued to be ran by John’s children. In 1853 Ardbeg boasted the first female distiller’s in Scotland after the death of Alexander, their elder brother. The family also went on to buy back the distillery in 1922 remaining at the helm until 1977. Following financial difficulties the distillery had a hiatus from 1981 to 1989, when distillation resumed it was on a much smaller scale. The distillery was sold again in 1997 to Glenmorangie Co. and restored to its former grandeur and as we know it today. Ardbeg has gone on to win many awards and enjoys releasing bottles to celebrate contemporary events. In 2021 a new stillhouse is completed doubling capacity. They are open year round in their visitor centre, bar and tours (Ardbeg 2023).
