The limited edition, annual Ardbeg Day 2016 release is inspired by the distillery's turbulent past. This whisky is matured in ex-bourbon casks and a portion matured in "dark sherry" casks. We aren't sure what that means, but we like the taste nonetheless! Bottled at 46.5%.

Nose: At first meaty, earthy and spicy. Bold notes of dark chocolate emerge against orange, rich treacle toffee, coffee and oak. Smoky bonfire in the background, along with a flowering blackcurrant bushes.

Palate: The mouthfeel is almost tart, or zesty lime. Raisins, dates, ginger and pepper spice surge forward, then retreat. Smouldering charcoal, wood polish and huge, tarry creosote notes follow.

Finish: Long, spicy and rich with lingering notes of toffee, coffee and tar.
