Elements of Islay Ar11
A 19 year old Ardbeg from Elements of Islay, matured for 12 years in American oak and then 7 years in 1st fill PX sherry butt.
Distilled in 2000. Bottled at cask strength in a release of 840 bottles.
Elements of Islay say... "a brawny dram where sweet, spicy and meaty flavours battle it out over open flames. Nearly two decades of aging have not tamed the classic [Ardbeg] smokiness."
