“If you enjoy rich smoky whiskeys, this one’s for you,” said Jason Parker, co-owner and president of Copperworks Distilling, in a prepared statement.
However, the whiskey’s sweetness from the primary maturation balances the heavy smoke from the Ardbeg cask.”
The distiller’s notes on the Ardbeg Cask find toasty aromas abound, with roasted marshmallow, pie crust, and morning campfire mingling with blackberry and balsamic. Flavors of roasted apples, caramelized sugars, dried fruit, and vanilla dominate, with a finish of brisket, iodine, red vines, and cigar.
