Ardbeg Dark Cove Committee Release 55% 700ml information

The Ardbeg Dark Cove Committee Release is a special bottling from the iconic Islay distillery, Ardbeg, founded in 1815 and currently owned by LVMH. This particular release was produced exclusively for members of the Ardbeg Committee in 2016. The whisky was matured in ex-bourbon casks, with a portion matured in dark sherry casks, creating a unique and limited edition expression. Known for its heavily peated Islay whisky, Ardbeg sources its malted barley from the maltings in Port Ellen. The Dark Cove is described as "The Darkest Ardbeg Ever" with notes of dark fruits, intense peat, ginger, and bacon, alongside a long smoky finish. It is said to honor the shadowy past of the Islay coastline. This punchier version of the standard release is a must-have for all Ardbeg enthusiasts, featuring a unique flavor profile and limited availability.
