Ardbeg presented its latest limited edition Ardbeg Fermutation. The new offering is the result of an unplanned experiment that resulted in the longest fermentation in Ardbeg's history.
The result is a drama that tastes like pure science fiction. Peat and smoke blend beautifully with fresh, floral aromas, while sharp, more malty notes give Ardbeg Fermutation a unique and spicy profile. The nose is fresh, floral, herbaceous and sour. Hints of mixed herbs and cedar wood combine with spicy, vibrant notes of smoked orange and grapefruit, along with bursts of menthol and peppermint. The palate is lively, lively and sharp with a "sparkling" texture, leading to firm and distinctive flavors: malt / biscuit tones, anise, cardamom, sweet mint caramel and cigar ash. Finally, there is a persistent, salty and decisive finish of mint, tar, oak tannin and leather.
