Ar11- Elements of Islay 56.8% 500ml

Elements of Islay takes on Ardbeg! This smoky single malt is the eleventh release in the "Ar" series, and spent its first 12 years of ageing in American oak. Then, it spent another seven years in a first-fill Pedro Ximénez sherry butt before it was bottled at cask strength. Only 840 bottles were released at 56.8% ABV.

Ardbeg remains one of the rarest whiskies to see independently bottled like this, and Elixir Distillers previous releases have been exceptional.
Oliver Chilton's from Elixir describes a spiced, fruitcakey nose with exotic incense burning around asian spices (saffron, star anise). The palate is leathery and meaty, with teriyaki glazed ribs, plum jam and dried blackcurrants, finishing long and bittersweet with chocolate and espresso.

Nose: Smouldering smoky oak, with dried fruit, liquorice and cherry jam.

Palate: Barbecued meat marinated in honey and soy, with clove-studded orange, burnt brown sugar and anise.

Finish: Plum tart and lots of barbecue smoke, with dusty cocoa.
