Ardbeg Perpetuum

Ardbeg Perpetuum Bottling Note

In 1815, the Ardbeg distillery was founded by John McDougall on the Isle of Islay. In 2015, Ardbeg Perpetuum was released during Fèis Ìle 2015 in celebration of their 200th anniversary. Dr. Bill Lumsden has created a full-bodied Islay single malt, rich in coastal peat, smoked meat and well-rounded vanilla notes, using a blend of whiskies both young and old, matured in both bourbon and Sherry casks. Here’s to the first 200 years - and to the next 200 years too!

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Ardbeg Perpetuum Reviews

Competent, but too expensive.

Very decent dram, light, fruit, a good peaty charmer without much complexity. Enjoyable but not worth the price.

Absolutely fine

Perpentuum is is pretty fine for everyone who appreciates Whisky and not some sugar loaded liquer.

Through the smoke, vanilla.

Ardbeg 10, but much more refined. Downside is the price.

Vanilla and cracked pepper

sipping a glass now... I would in fact save a few bucks and opt for the Ardberg 10 year. With this Perpetuum, I do enjoy the smoothness and vanilla/peppercorn notes. A sweet, smokey hit, which I enjoy, but not as much as the 10 year. Steep price for diminished reward.

Thin coatline with small beads and legs run slowly reflecting low oil content and higher ABV.
Colour slightly darker than 10 year old, suggesting a very short finish in a sherry cask, unless of course that was a Fino sherry and accompanying dryness which is present, but I suspect Oloroso.
Nose - slighter smoke than usual, chocolate hit, ashy and some gunpowder,, slight dried fruits mainly raisin, slight hint of banana and pear reflecting isoamyl acetate. A licorice background. Slight inside of a teapot aroma. The feinty aromas are typical of the Kildaltons and not surprising given that 60%+ of the phenols are in the feints.
Palate - salty, peat smoke is quite strong, chilli and pepper from 1st fill American Casks. A bit of a wolf in sheets clothing given the reduced Ardbeg smokiness in the nose.
Finish - slightly smoke, slightly sweet, tannic, medium length
Conclusion - is it worth the money? Not in comparison to other Ardbegs, but I have just opened the bottle and to be fair it will probably sharpen up considerably. I prefer the 10 year old over any of the other Ardbegs and Corryvreckan, Uigeadail and Dark Cove over this NAS. Still a nice enough peated whisky and more gentle than most others of the Kildalton strains.

A complete insult to my taste buds and a regretful waste of good money.

After reading those reviews..

Wow, after reading those reviews I am to scared to try a bottle of this. I want to continue loving Ardbeg. I've tried 10 Year, Corryvreckan and Uigeadail so far.

Much better then the 10yo

Have added some sweetness to the original 10yo, very nice!

Nice and sleek

A kind Ardbeg. Smoked ham comes to mind. I am enjoying my first bottle.
