Back to the present

About 10 hours after the Ardbeg Rollercoaster sample was enjoyed I had to get up and get ready for work. On my way to the shower I stopped by the kitchen sink for a glass of water and to see what I could find in the empty whisky glass from last night. Classic empty Ardbeg whisky glass notes are what I found. Band-aid! That’s what American tasters usually say for medicinal notes, or gauze or hospital smells even. And peanuts and vanilla too, very nice. Milk chocolate can also be found at times but not this morning. Maybe cause I was in a rush to get to work on time? Too bad, hopefully next time.

  1. Nice. How long do these smells stay in the glass? days? Does it depend on the whisky??

    • Great question Joseph! I’m still exploring this but can report on this most recent whisky sampled, the Ardbeg Rollercoaster, as now after about 40 hours, though the notes have shifted slightly, they are still present, and not faint. I’m sure it does depend on the quality of the whisky, how long the scents will linger in the glass for, and also how much whisky is left in the glass.
