Ardbeg Auriverdes The Ultimate Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distilled with equal measures of skill and passion, Ardbeg Aurivedes-golden whisky (auri), unmistakable green bottle (verde)-is destined to be the star of Ardbeg Day this year. The dram is rumoured to be a of a hot head on account of its toasted cask lids. The Ardbeg team is renowned for its technical expertise and Auriverdes is a winning example if this, with the toasted lids producing a mocha coffe flavour at one end, flowing into creamy vannila at the other-a match made in heven.
Aroma: Tarry and herbal notes with hints of mocha
Taste: Coffe grounds pass to smoked root vegetables, while maple-cured bacon collides with hot-smoked salmon.
