The base beer is our Parabola and matured for three months in Single malt Scotch barrels from the Distillery Ardbeg. This distillery is located in the Islay Region of Scotland, which is known to produce some of the world’s best high peat Scotch. The Ardbeg 10 year old was voted “2008 Whisky of the Year” in Jim Murrays book “The Whisky Bible”.
Nose: Upfront there is an exceptional depth and balance with a seductive mix of toffee and chocolate sweetness alongside cinnamon and medicinal phenols. As the beer warms slightly it is followed by citrus and floral notes of white wines evident as melon and overripe pear.
Taste: An initial clean sweetness then briefly comes into play a mouthfeel of deep peat notes, sea salt, smoked fish, tobacco smoke and strong espresso coffee.
Finish: Lasting with a seaside campfire smoke.
If you love Islay high peat scotch then you are in for a treat and if you are not then take at least three sips to allow you palate to adjust to these intense, yet balanced flavors before passing your glass and we promise you will not be disappointed.
So light up a cigar, sit next to a roaring fire and allow this experience to take you to the seaside of Scotland!
