Ardbeg Twenty Something (guaranteed 22 years old) 70cl. This whisky was born during a time when the iconic Ardbeg Distillery name was almost consigned to the history books. During a period of uncertainty for Ardbeg in the 1980s and 1990s, when the stills were near empty and the filling store silent, a handful of young whisky enthusiasts dared to dream. Together, with hope in their hearts, they laid down a handful of casks and kept the Ardbeg spirit alive. The fruits of their hopes have paid off with this spectacular whisky.

 

  • Distillery: Ardbeg
  • Age/Name: 22 
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 46.4% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller
  • Chill-Filtered: No
  • Nose: Lime cordial, orange marmalade and buttery pastry, with some TCP elements and refined smoke. Hints of vanilla and clove develop.

    Palate: There's plenty of dark and orchard fruits among golden syrup, dark chocolate and black peppercorn. Cured meat and a little salinity emerge.

    Finish: Long and sweet, with a touch of bittersweet smoke.
