By removing the cask heads and deeply scoring them, our approach has been to expose a larger surface of wood to the toasting process. This unique method has led to the creation of a truly multidimensional spirit known as Ardbeg Anamorphic. This extraordinary whisky gracefully transitions between four distinct elements - the SWEET, the SMOKED, the HERBAL, and the SPICY.
As you explore the aromas, you'll encounter a captivating blend of earthy peatiness and a subtle hint of biscuity notes, leading you into a world that feels strangely familiar yet distinctively unique – an Ardbeg from an alternate universe. The initial sooty impressions are elegantly tempered by the presence of silky vanilla, while the palate gradually reveals a thrilling combination of fiery chilli chocolate and bittersweet mocha.
Further exploration of the whisky unravels herbal notes, with the smoky vetiver root and fennel weaving in harmony alongside floral hints of chrysanthemum and jasmine. The journey takes a bold turn as ground black pepper and grilled artichokes make a dramatic entrance, building up to a crescendo of rich, smoky flavors that will leave your taste buds in awe.
The grand finale of this remarkable spirit offers a lingering aftertaste that tantalizes your senses with echoes of charcoal, bitter almonds, and the subtle sweetness of molasses. Ardbeg Anamorphic is not just a whisky; it's a captivating and transformative experience that will leave a lasting impression on every whisky enthusiast.
