Product DescriptionFrom a Distillery with more ups and downs than a pogoing punk comes Ardcore. Created with roasted black malt, roasted to the extreme, this spirit is all about what happens up front - centre stage. The malt is what defines its distinctive profile. Described as tasting like 'biting on a spiky ball', Ardcore is a dram that wears its heart on its sleeve...its black heart!
Notes of charcoal and sweet smoke make for an in-your-face nose, while potent notes of aniseed and dark chocolate stamp this bottle out as one fit only for the most Ardcore of fans.
- COLOR - Pale Straw.
- NOSE - Fresh, floral, herbal & tart. Hints of mixed herbs and cedar wood. Very zesty, vibrant, hints of smoked orange & grapefruit, lots of menthol & peppermint. With water, powerful bursts of diesel oil, tar, fresh paint and aniseed. As this dies down, a memory of freshly cut hay, a touch of silage and the tiniest hint of something savory, like yeast extract or bread dough.
- TASTE - A lively, vibrant, sharp, 'zingy' texture, leading into very firm, distinctive flavors - malty/biscuit tones, powerful aniseed, cardamon, antiseptic lozenge, sweet mint toffee and cigar ash.
- FINISH - Finally, a lingering, salty, firm aftertaste of mint, tar, oak tannin & leather.
