Ardbeg Feis Ile 2013 Ardbog. 2013’s Feis Ile offering from Ardbeg is the Ardbog. Aged in a combination of bourbon as well as some Manzanilla sherry casks, it was released to celebrate Ardbeg day on 1st June 2013.
Sea salt and brine with some dark fruit and hints of barbecue. Maple syrup, plum, orange, mint and more herbal notes with a touch of tomato vine.
Big – it feels like all the moisture is being sucked out of your mouth at first but in a good way(!). Salt crusted raisins, rich nuttiness, pickled onions.
There’s red chilli heat on the finish as well as paprika.
