Huon Hooke, “A most impressive malt”.
Released in June 2015 as part of their 200th Anniversary celebrations. The malt has been matured in a mix bourbon and sherry casks.
I’ll leave it to Doug from ForWhiskyLovers , “”Aroma: Mellow, rich and enticing, with the unmistakable Ardbeggian combination of tar, soot and pine resin. A remarkably fresh bouquet for such a peaty whisky. Taste: Creamy and mouth-chilling, slightly chewy. Finish: Intense, robust peat smoke, savory smoky bacon, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also an incredible creamy, sweet vanilla/milk chocolate note, which soothes the palate. Only 6,600 bottles of Perpetuum have been released worldwide, so this truly is a limited edition whisky. So if you want a bottle, get it now.”
And from Huon Hooke in The Age , “Commemorating Ardbeg’s 200th anniversary in 2015, this is unbelievably peaty, even for Islay. It’s a fantastic spirit, aromatic and intense, with penetrating flavour, but not sharp. A most impressive malt.”
