Ardbeg Renaissance is the end of the series that began with the 'Very Young'. This is the first 10-year old Ardbeg that is entirely comprised of spirit produced after Glenmorangie's takeover of the distillery in 1997. A fitting end to the series and a great dram.
NOSE: A blast of peat soaked in tropical juices. Toasted vanilla, sizzling cinnamon, sherbert and smooth Swiss chocolate. Water adds juicy melons, pineapple chunks and bursts of aniseed and spiced rum.
TASTE: Cinnamon-spiced toffee and smoked chocolate limes, warm toasted bananas and bitter almonds. Ginger-spiced apples and pears and Seville orange crystals. Dark espresso coffee, sticks of liquorice root and a bowlful of sugared almonds.
FINISH: Goes on and on with simmering peat oils, wispy vanilla cream and chewy liquorice whirls.
