Ardbeg Traigh Bhan 19 Year Old

一瓶達至絕佳平衡的 Ardbeg


讓一眾 Ardbeg 愛好者期待而久,Ardbeg 的 常規款式終於迎來了另一瓶帶年份的作品。每年均以 Small Batch 形式推出,這瓶 19 年作品靈感源自艾雷島上,在當地有「Singing Sands」之名的 Traigh Bhan 海灘。


今年推出的批次由美國橡木桶及 Oloroso 雪莉桶混合而成,而每年的 Batch Code 不僅只有 01、02 等改變,每年更會作出不少改動(包括最年輕的酒液蒸餾日期、酒款的主理人等)。這一瓶作品由酒廠經理 Mickey Heads 主導,他更指出這瓶威士忌的香氣是他任內最出色(loveliest)的一款。


聞香明顯受雪莉桶影響,帶有水果香氣、焦糖、煙燻及黑朱古力氣味,入口的泥煤味不重,油潤而甜美,最後收結悠長而柔和,這瓶 Traigh Bhan 確實造就出異常出色的平衡及層次感。


Produced in small batches to be released every year, this exceptionally rare and ever-changing 19 Year Old draws its inspiration from Islay’s Traigh Bhan beach, known locally as the Singing Sands.


The first batch is a combination of American oak and Oloroso sherry casks, and the batch code varies with years. This year’s bottling features the Distillery Manager, Mickey Heads. When this whisky was disgorged, Mickey remarked that the aroma was the loveliest he’d experience in all his years.


On the nose, definitely influenced by sherry cask, you will discover elegant notes dark fruit, caramel, smoke and dark chocolate, while on the taste, a very soft and oily taste with gentle peat, sweetness guide your palate towards a long and gentle finish.
