Ardbeg An Oa Scotch Whisky (46.6% abv)

A welcome new addition to the Ultimate range. Ardbeg An Oa is singularly rounded, due in no small part to time spent in our newly established bespoke oak Gathering Vat where whiskies from several cask types – including; sweet Pedro Ximenez; spicy virgin charred oak; and intense ex-bourbon casks, amongst others – familiarise themselves with each other. The result is a dram with smoky power, mellowed by a delectable, smooth sweetness. Hallmark Ardbeg peat, dark chocolate and aniseed are wrapped in smooth, silky butterscotch, black pepper and clove, before rising to an intense crescendo of flavour.

Ardbeg Traigh Bhan 19 Year Old Scotch Whisky (46.2% abv)

Ardbeg Traigh Bhan is a sublime 19 year old whisky and the Distillery’s latest small batch release. Inspired by Islay’s Traigh Bhan beach (known locally as the Singing Sands), this rare aged spirit is an enchanting reflection of the place to which it owes its name.

In a whisky where calm meets storm, experience seductively smooth beginnings, before powerful notes emerge in an intense crescendo. On the nose, discover elegant notes of herbal pine resin, smoky pineapple, and dark chilli chocolate.

Ardbeg Corryvreckan (57.1% abv)

Ardbeg Corryvreckan takes its name from the famous whirlpool that lies to the north of Islay, where only the bravest souls dare to venture. Swirling aromas and torrents of deep, peaty, peppery taste lurk beneath the surface of this beautifully balanced dram. Like the whirlpool itself, Corryvreckan is not for the faint-hearted! Awarded The World’s Best Single Malt in 2010 by the World Whiskies Awards.

Non chill-filtered at 57.1% ABV

Ardbeg 10 Year Old Scotch Whisky (46% abv)

Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008. Whisky Bible Awards 2012: Best Single Malt Scotch of the Year, 10 Years and Under.

Ardbeg Drum Limited Edition Islay (46% abv)

Released in celebration of Ardbeg Day at the 2019 Islay Festival, this expression is the first from the distillery to be matured in ex-bourbon casks and then rested for a time in ex-rum casks from the Americas. Bottled at 46% abv, this limited edition is inspired by the island’s history of carnivals.

There’s pine and woodsmoke on the nose, alongside ripe banana and pineapple, with cocoa powder and cinnamon. The palate brings waves of smoke with tar and creosote and a dry peppery mouthfeel, before cloves, ginger and dark chocolate. Intense Ardbeg smoke with coffee liqueur and sweet spices on the finish.

Ardbeg Uigeadail (54.2% abv)

In 2009, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail ‘World Whisky of the Year’ – in praise of its “utter silky brilliance” and “complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.”

Pronounced ‘Oog-a-dal’, it’s a special vatting that marries Ardbeg’s traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. Ardbeg Uigeadail was voted by the 120,000+ strong Ardbeg Committee as their favourite Ardbeg.

Non chill-filtered at 54.2% ABV.

Big Peat – Islay Blended Malt (46% abv)

Big Peat is a remarkable marriage of Malt Whiskies only from the island of Islay. He is, of course, proudly without colouring or chill-filtration and bottled at high alcohol strength (46%), resulting in a naturally oily spirit that promises an incredible mouth-feel. With Caol Ila spirit bringing sweetness, Bowmore the perfect balance, Ardbeg the medicinal, earthy quality and Port Ellen, a degree of elegance, Big Peat represents all that is Islay in a bottle. Fred Laing tells us that of course, there are a couple of Blender’s Secrets in Big Peat too – but even after a few drams, he won’t share that info – and so it remains our peaty little secret!
