Review #317 – Ardbeg Perpetuum
Whiskey Network Review #317 | /r/Scotch Review #132 – Ardbeg Perpetuum, 94.8pf | 47.4% ABV
The Rub: I wish I knew. Ardbeg says this release represents their “past, present and future”…whatever that means.
ABV: 47.4% | 94.8 pf
Nose: Ashy ardbeg peat smoke. Vanilla cream, lemon poppyseed, dough, zest and pepper and salt
Taste: Meaty, creamy, sweet and peppery. Citrus. Ashy. Very meaty for an Ardneg expression.
Finish: Long, more Briney, peppery, ashy, meaty thae sweet and fruity like the nose
Overall: This is pretty good. Distinctive and fairly different from regular Ardbeg but I’m not sure I”d pay what they’re asking on this puppy. It’s unique but not life changing.
