Its taste and aroma are characterized by a fruity, fragrant and smoky finish, created by vatting* a peaty, smoky whiskey aged in bourbon barrels with a tropically sweet whiskey aged in Ardbeg’s first ever Madeira wine barrels. is. Powerful smoke, banana, menthol and lime aromas invite smoky malt lovers to enjoy a flavorful sip. As a homage to the unique smoky and sweet “hybrid” style, the bottle packaging has a design inspired by the “unicorn”, a mythical beast well known from Scotland and Islay.
Commenting on the limited edition Ardbeg Anthology Unicorn’s Tail, Dr Bill Ramsden, Chief Distillery and Manufacturing Officer, said: “The staff at Ardbeg have taken the smoky balance that symbolizes the spirit of the distillery and combined it with a world of new flavours. Once upon a time, we decided to mature Ardbeg in unique barrels at the distillery to create a sweet and smoky ‘hybrid’ whisky. Thus the Anthology Collection was born. “The Unicorn’s Tail” is the second in the series, combining classic Ardbeg aged in bourbon barrels with whiskey fully matured in sweet Madeira wine barrels. The result is a whiskey bursting with notes of banana bread and tropical fruit, combining Ardbeg’s signature flavors of camphor, lime zest and smoke. This 14 year old whiskey has a sweetness to it, but its smoky side is definitely not to be underestimated! ” says.
*Vatting: Mixing unprocessed sake aged in multiple barrels
