Ardbeg 2005 NSS Cask Series 004 Refill Hogshead 51.9% 700ml information

The Ardbeg 2005 NSS Cask Series 004 Refill Hogshead is a remarkable single malt Scotch whisky boasting an ABV of 51.9% and a bottle size of 700ml. Distilled in 2005 at the esteemed Ardbeg distillery located in the Islay region, this whisky has been matured for 12 years in a refill hogshead cask before being bottled in 2018 by the independent bottler North Star Spirits. With a limited release of only 332 bottles, this expression is a rare find for whisky enthusiasts. The whisky presents an intricate and intense flavor profile. When undiluted, it offers an extremely dry and bitter taste, featuring notes of grapefruit juice, ultra-ristretto coffee, mustard, smoke, salt, and seawater. The aroma is evocative of a working kiln, characterized by peat smoke, burning oak, and dried kelp, with underlying hints of tarmac, a new bicycle inner tube, and a touch of phosphorus. Adding a splash of water transforms the whisky, revealing softer notes of manzanilla, sourdough, baker's yeast, and leaven. The cask's lazy behavior during maturation has imparted an exceptional character to this whisky, making it a noteworthy part of Ardbeg's new regime. It is interesting to note that previous vintages from 2005 were bottled under different names, such as 'Kildalton,' rather than as Ardbeg. The whisky's nuanced flavor and aroma are further enriched with sharp peat, pineapple, horseradish, licorice, and caramelized notes on the nose. The palate offers a salty smoke, black cherry tobacco, caramelized flavors, peppermint, and tobacco. The finish is characterized by sweet licorice powder, leaving a lingering and spicy aftertaste. Overall, the Ardbeg 2005 NSS Cask Series 004 Refill Hogshead 51.9% delivers a complex and smoky profile with a delightful balance of salty and sweet notes.
