Ardbeg Kildalton 2014 is the new edition of a historical Ardbeg, that dates back to 2004, and contains a spirit from 1980. The distillery has decided to repeat the name as a tribute to the cross, that rises not far from the establishment. Sold in 2014, this is a limited series with no indication of age.
TASTING NOTES ARDBEG KILDALTON 2014
Nose: immediately mineral peat, followed by a noticeably smoky sensation. After a few minutes, the influence of the ex-Sherry barrels emerges, emanating aromas of bacon and red fruits. Coastal and licorice notes complete the bouquet.
Palate: fresh and lively. The youth of the product is evident. The mineral peat is repeated, joined by leather and salt notes. The intensity is medium-low.
Finish: of long persistence and medium intensity. The Ardbeg Kildalton 2014 is a good product; the youth of this Scotch whisky is evident, especially on the palate. The finish is persistent and multi-faceted.
