Ardbeg – Heavy Vapours


Ardbeg Heavy Vapours is the distillery’s first whisky ever distilled without a purifier-the apparatus on the still responsible for maintaining Ardbeg’s balance between extreme peat and floral fruitiness. This experiment by Director of Whisky Creation, Dr. Bill Lumsden, has allowed the heaviest and untamed vapours to rise up the still during the distillation process, before being captured, matured and bottled. Smoke rises with a cloying sweetness. Intense, pungent and aromatic. Ardbeg’s untamed darker flavours and notes have risen. A burst of bittersweetness surges, disturbing ashy coal dust and casting a haze of cardamom, peppermint and coffee grits. Wisps of aniseed twists, cinnamon balls and antiseptic lozenges float on the palate.
