A blend of the rich and the sublime, Ardbeg’s latest limited edition parades a complex array of flavor across the palate. An homage to the spirit of Carnival, you’ll find underlying tropical notes of smoked pineapple, banana, and papaya tangoing with smoke, vanilla, and ashy pine. This is a party for your palate and with this whisky everyone gets out on the dance floor!
Follow your nose along the famous road from Port Ellen and you will eventually come to Ardbeg Distillery nestled in a rocky cove on Islay's southern tip. Since inception, Ardbeg has dealt with many trials and tribulations. From over-taxation in the late 1700's, to being mothballed in the late 1900's (much like Islay's indigenous townsfolk), it has seen it's fair share of hardships. Fortunately, a team of dedicated souls from Glenmorangie set about repairing and reviving the distillery and saved this historic brand from extinction. Utilizing divine older stock, they have crafted a few signature bottlings - including this one - that are highly coveted by malt enthusiasts.
