The Ardbeg Dark Cove is an excellent limited edition single malt whisky from Islay’s famous Ardbeg distillery. This exceptional dram was released on 28th May 2016 for Ardbeg Day, the annual celebration that takes place during the hugely popular Feis Ile music and whisky festival.
Matured in dark sherry and ex-bourbon casks, it brings notes of sticky dates, tobacco leaves, smoky bacon and that famous Ardbeg peat smoke together with ginger spice, rich treacle and sweet oak. It’s a full-bodied and relatively rich drinking experience that has been lapped up by anyone who manages to get their hands on a bottle. This is one of those whiskies that is simply brilliant and you’ll struggle to find a bad review among fans and critics alike.
