One of the legendary Islay distilleries, Ardbeg holds a special place in the hearts of many whisky enthusiasts. A smoky, medicinal, slightly bacon-y place in their hearts, to be specific. Situated on the south coast of Islay, Ardbeg has been producing their distinctive style of single malt since 1815 using their glorious stills, which you can see on our Ardbeg labels! You can also see famous Ardbeg collector Geert Bero reaching up to the precious Spirit Purifier atop the still.
Nose: Salt and pepper crisps, peanut shells and a touch of butterscotch.
Palate: Smoky and spicy in equal measures, with a flash of lemon bringing freshness to the palate.
Finish: Lasting toasted nuts and sea salt.
