A rare age-statement release from the kings of smoke. Aromas of campfire, cooked sugar, cocoa, anise, and herbs are just a few of the highlights of this intensely complex whisky. Full-bodied and the peat is still ever present despite its age, you'll find additional notes of leather, mushrooms and a hint of citrus core. A truly stunning whisky from the rarest stocks in one of Islay's top producers.

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.
