Product Detail

Traditionally, during production the purifier catches the heaviest vapours which means that Ardbeg is not just “all peat” but gets a supremely balanced taste. For the release of this batch the purifier was removed from the distillation process before being matured in classic Ardbeg casks. And this whisky is the consequence. Heavy Vapours have risen, making this dram the most full-blown Ardbeg ever. Ardbeg wash distilled without the purifier & matured in classic Ardbeg casks

Appearance: Pale straw

Aroma: Intense, pungent and aromatic with hints of sweetness – expect a distinctive farmyard scent drifting along with a crunchy aroma of creosote or tar. A splash of water disturbs the vapours and billows of dark chocolate cream laced with smoked artichoke emerge.

Taste: On the palate, darker flavours and notes arise. A burst of bittersweetness surges with flavours of ashy coal, cardamom, peppermint and ground coffee. Dark chocolate and eucalyptus then roll in, obscuring the fruit and floral notes usually found at the heart of Ardbeg whiskies, followed by wisps of aniseed and cinnamon.


Enjoy neat, with a little water or 2-3 large rocks of ice.


Islay, Scotland. Founded in 1815, the Ardbeg distillery is revered by connoisseurs around the world as the peatiest, smokiest and most complex of all the Islay malts, while being renowned for its delicious sweetness, a phenomenon known as “the peaty paradox”. Regarded today as the “Ultimate Islay Malt”, Ardbeg is a distinctive whisky with a compelling history. During the 1980s and 1990s, Ardbeg suffered from an uncertain future and was purchased by The Glenmorangie Company in 1997. Since then, the distillery has risen like a phoenix and today Ardbeg is well established as a niche, cult malt, with a passionate following.
