The Ardbeg Dark Cove was matured in ex-bourbon and dark Sherry casks to create ‘The Darkest Ardbeg Ever.’ This release, although bottled at a lower ABV than the Committee Release, has garnered great reviews, including one from Dramming.com's Oliver Klimek. It has notes of dark fruits, intense peat, ginger and bacon, with a long smoky finish. It is said to be created to honour the Islay coastline's shadowy past – although the colour isn’t too dark at all, the dark casks used provide plenty of oaky depth.
