Darkness Ardbeg 14 Year Old Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish #11723 Description
Sherry + smoke = a winning combination!
This independent bottling of Ardbeg single malt from Darkness is a 14-year-old Islay expression that has been finished in a Pedro Ximénez sherry octave cask, allowing for huge sherry-bomb notes, before being bottled at a sturdy 52.2% abv.
Nose: autumnal with notes of a vanilla latte, toffee apples and rich earthiness.
Palate: nutty and sweet, with a rich burst of blackberry marmalade alongside whiffs of bonfire smoke.
Finish: while the smoke begins to disappear, the fruits carry on far longer.
