Ardbeg Scorch 46% Single Malt Main Release 700ml

Ardbeg Distillery recently unveiled its new limited release in honor of Ardbeg Day this summer.

Matured in ex-bourbon American oak casks and heavily charred, Ardbeg Scorch (46% ABV) is said by the brand to give off aromas of soot and smoke while grilled fare and black licorice mingle with bold notes of medicinal lozenge.

“Ardbeg Scorch is our tribute to the legendary dragon of Islay,” Ardbeg’s Director of Distilling and Whisky Creation Dr. Bill Lumsden said in a prepred statement. “By using our most heavily-charred casks, we’ve created a fire-breathing beast of a dram!”

  • Color – Bright brushed gold
  • Nose – On the nose, frighteningly intense aromas of soot and smoke lie in wait. Hints of aniseed and fragrant patchouli interlace with bold notes of quenched steel and saddle soap. With a drop of water, herbal top notes of briarwood, sage and pine wisp their way to the fore.
  • Taste – Take a sip and experience layer upon layer of flavor. An oily mouthfeel grips the senses. Billowy clouds of sweet smoke and dragon charred oak permeate the palate, while grilled fare and black licorice weave between notes of medicinal lozenge.
  • Finish – A long and heroic finale, with a subtle tarry aftertaste. A finish that will drag on, well into its happily ever after.
