The W Club Whisky Auctions

Ardbeg Dark Cove

A deliciously dark expression from the Islay distillery, this limited edition was released to mark the end of Ardbeg Day during the 2016 Islay Festival of Music & Malt. Matured in ex-bourbon and dark sherry casks, this expression harks back to the days of illicit stills and whisky smugglers hoping to avoid the notorious Excise Men.

Tasting Notes:
The nose entices with dark chocolate, rich treacle toffee and distant bonfires, while the palate is smouldering with charcoal and wood polish, with raisins and dates emerging from the shadows. The finish is long and spicy with cured ham and squid ink noodles lingering.

Lot sold on behalf of third party owner. No VAT will apply to the hammer price.

Please examine the images of the lot carefully, including any packaging and labels, to inspect the condition of the item before placing a bid.

How W Club auctions work

Bids must be submitted in increments of £10 (increment values vary per auction). Auctions run until their closing date, or until bidding is exhausted.

When an auction is coming to a close, each new bid will extend the auction to allow bidders reasonable time to submit a new high bid.

Completed auctions and winning bids

An auction is complete if no higher bids are received within a short period of the current high bid, after the closing date of the auction.

Maximum bids

Enter the maximum bid you are willing to pay for an item and we'll automatically bid in £10 increments (increment values vary per auction) up to that value – so you avoid missing out on popular items or paying more than you want.

Watch items

You can watch any item, and we'll send you an email notification when new bids are placed. If you are the highest bidder, we'll send you an email if someone else bids a higher amount.
