Description

Dark Cove is a limited-edition whisky released on 28 May in honour of Ardbeg Day 2016 – the distillery's open day as part of the yearly Islay Festival.

The Darkest Ardbeg ever, take this whisky and hide it well. For its heart has been matured in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks, this whisky is smoky and spicy imparting waves of treacle toffee, coal tar, squid ink noodles and toasted coffee grounds.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Copper stills in moonlight

Nose: Dark chocolate, rich treacle toffee and distant bonfires – betrays a secret: a clandestine meeting of Ardbeg matured in exBourbon casks and a heart matured in dark sherry casks.

Palate: Hints of pepper spice and zesty lime lure you in. Smouldering charcoal and wood with raisins, dates and ginger emerging from shadows of tarry creosote.

Finish: Echoes of cured smoked ham and squid ink noodles signal the arrival of a long, spicy aftertaste.

A no age whisky full of classic Islay character from peat and warming spices, both of which are perfectly balanced. This whisky was not what I was expecting, although it had all the aspects of an Ardbeg whisky from the rich darkness to the spice, it didn't take over. Those at Ardbeg have definitely got this one right!
