The Expression “Adrbog” Will Soon Be On Everyone’s Lips

image
NEW YORK, May 28, 2013 /jm/ -- Every year from the end of May through early June, the Scottish island of Islay welcomes hundreds of Scotch-lovers for its Festival of Malt and Music. This weeklong tribute to everything whisky culminates in Ardbeg Day when the distillery opens its doors to Ardbeg lovers from around the world. Recognizing that not all Ardbeg fans can make the pilgrimage to the Land of Peat, last year Ardbeg launched Ardbeg Day celebrations worldwide along with a limited edition Ardbeg Day bottling so that fans could join in the festivities wherever they were.



Ardbeg Day was such a success, that they're doing it all over again for 2013. Only this time, they've renamed it Ardbog Day in honor of the newest limited edition release - Ardbog! Crafted from ex-Manzanilla matured Ardbeg and bottled at 52.1% ABV, Ardbog is expected to be as well-received as last year's Ardbeg Day and Galileo, which each won impressive accolades from the 2013 Jim Murray Whisky Bible and the 2013 World Whisky Awards, respectively.

In addition to the much-anticipated release of Ardbog, 2013's events will enable many more fans to drink in the spirit of celebration! These events include promotions, tastings, parties, and plenty of fun activities happening around the world. Details and registration for the U.S. events can be found at: http://www.ardbeg.com/ardbeg/us. Much like Ardbeg, the celebration is expected to be big and untamed, so immediate registration is recommended to secure a spot in this very spirited affair!

Ardbog Tasting Notes

Color - deep ochre

Aroma - deep, enticing waves of pecan nuts, salty toffee & caramels, fudge, leather and a distinct whiff of herbs, lavender and violets. The smoke is soft and aromatic, and is interwoven with salty, savory notes, like Iberico ham (de bellota) and olives

Some water brings forth herbal, perfumed notes, smoked rhubarb, aged balsamic vinegar and some salty, 'graphite' notes reminding you of the Manzanilla cask element

Texture/taste - a full, oily/tingly mouthfeel leads into a powerful, salty, savory burst of flavors - salted cashews and peanuts, clove, aniseed flavored toffee, green olives and a curious hint of anchovy. A long, lingering aftertaste, in which the classic Ardbeg sweetness (like a hint of maple syrup) is kept in check by oak tannins, clove and coffee grounds.

Premium Canadian Whiskies From Sazerac Make Great Father's Day Gifts

image

NEW ORLEANS, May 23, 2013 /jm/ -- Forget the tie – this year give dad what he really wants – whisky! Two premium Canadian whiskies from The Sazerac Company are sure to make dad's eyes light up upon opening – Caribou Crossing, the world's first single barrel Canadian whisky, and Royal Canadian Small Batch Canadian whisky.



The premium and super premium Canadian whisky category continues to show strong growth, as consumers are re-discovering this category and realizing there are some strong players in it who have upped the ante when it comes to quality," said Kevin Richards , Canadian whisky marketing director.

"The smooth, easy taste of Canadian whisky makes it easy to sip neat or with your favorite mixer. With the addition of single barrel and small batch whiskies likes Caribou Crossing and Royal Canadian, more and more consumers are taking a second look at the Canadian whisky offerings and becoming interested again," adds Richards.

Critics seem to agree with this, as both brands have won a myriad of awards since introduction, most recently at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, where Caribou Crossing won its second straight Chairman's Trophy and a "93" rating, and Royal Canadian Small Batch was given a "very good, strong recommendation" by the judges.

The 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition also produced some medals, with both brands winning silver medals at the highly competitive tasting.

Other accolades for the brands include:

Caribou Crossing: "93" rating from John Hansell at Whisky Advocate; "2010 Canadian Whisky of the Year" by canadianwhisky.org; Double gold medal at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition; a gold medal and "90" rating from Tastings.com (Beverage Testing Institute); a gold medal and "90" rating at the 2010 Ultimate Spirits Challenge; a silver medal and best in class at the 2010 International Wine and Spirits Competition; and a bronze medal at the 2010 Los Angeles International Wine and Spirits Competition.

Tasting notes for Caribou Crossing describe it as "primarily vanilla, with some creme brulee, toasted marshmallow, tangerine, peaches and cream, and gentle rye spice..." ( John Hansell , Whisky Advocate.)



Royal Canadian Small Batch has its own set of hardware. In the 2012 Ultimate Spirits Challenge the brand achieved a "90" rating; a gold medal and "90" rating from Tastings.com (Beverage Testing Institute); a "90" rating from Wine Enthusiast; a silver medal in the 2011 Ultimate Spirits Challenge; and a bronze medal at the 2011 World Spirits Competition.

Royal Canadian Small Batch has been described as "sweet and smoky like a Memphis BBQ. The initial sip is velvety smooth with huge flavors. There is a nutty praline sweetness that slides through the creamy rich sensations. The finish is a bold reminder that this is whisky and the citrus-spicy conclusion just leaves you with the desire for the next notable sip."

Both brands were created by native Canadian Drew Mayville , Sazerac's master blender. Mayville himself hand-selects the barrel used for Caribou Crossing, choosing the most mature and flavor-rich samples available and overseeing the bottling of each individual barrel. The Royal Canadian Small Batch undergoes a similar stringent selection process under Mayville's watchful eye. The barrels themselves are from Sazerac's 300,000 plus Canadian whisky barrel inventory.

The two Canadian whiskies make ideal gifts for Father's Day, and are at price points for discriminating budgets. The Caribou Crossing retails for $49.99 for a 750 ml and the Royal Canadian Small Batch is $19.99 for a 750 ml.

The Caribou Crossing is also already wrapped in an elegant gift box, making it an even easier choice than a necktie.
