Tasting notes:
Ardbeg Drum is non chill
filtered and bottled at 46% ABV.

Colour
Dark Gold

Nose:
In
Drum, fragrant pine resin and woodsmoke dance alongside ripe banana and
pineapple in a downright wondrous paradiddle of aromas, before parading into
smoked apples and dry cocoa powder. Distant ginger, spiced dates and cinnamon sway
into floating notes of lavender.

Taste:
On
the palate, waves of smoke, tar and creosote cascade into a dry peppery
mouthfeel. Clove, liquorice and ginger strut towards rich notes of dark chocolate and
smoked vanilla.

Finish:
Intense
smoke, roasted coffee liqueur and a treasure trove of sweet spices come
together in one deliciously complex crescendo.
