Darkness!-Aged Bathtub Gin (Ardbeg) (Batshit Mental Ideas)

Ardbeg Aged Bathtub Bottling Note

Yep. Exactly what it says on the tin (or bottle, if you're going to be picky). Bathtub Gin which has been aged in a cask which held Pedro Ximénez Sherry and was used to finish the Darkness! Ardbeg single malt Scotch whisky. It also says "Batshit Mental" on the bottle, and it is indeed just that. However, it doesn't say "ridiculously cool" and "marvellously yummy", which it definitely, definitely should.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: There's only one thing you want to know here, isn't there? Is this Bathtub Gin with added Ardbeg peat? The short answer is yes (huzzah!), but the Sherried Darkness! finish factor plays its part too (double huzzah!). Sooty, floral juniper. Blueberries and smoky parma violets.

Palate: Ardbeg smoke supported by juniper, spices and also the delicious Cadbury's chocolateyness from the Darkness! release. Awesome stuff!

Finish: Chocolatey embers - this is the least 'gin-y' of all these Batshit Mental Ideas Darkness!-Aged Bathtub Gins, although the juniper is never entirely lost.

Overall: Batshit Darkness! Pedro Ximénez Ardbeg Bathtub Gin. Utterly mental. Utterly awesome.

Bring it back!
Quite simply the best gin ever, I am so distraught it isn’t made any more.

Amazing Stuff!
I’ve come to buy more, seen it is discontinued. Now I am off to sob like a child who has just been told Father Christmas isn’t real.

Lemon Sherbet!
Simply epic stuff - really reminds me of Port Ellen for some reason - the lemon and peat thing is powerful, powerful stuff.
