Ardbeg "Twenty Something" 23 year Committee Release Single Malt Whisky

$599.00

A rare committee release that fans of Ardbeg must own. The nearest thing to being able to step back in time to the Ardbeg Distillery of yesteryear, is to taste the spirit it produced. Ardbeg Twenty Something is a rare Limited Edition Committee bottling from 23 long years ago. On the nose, sweet wood smoke and vanilla cream mingle with sherry notes, burning pine cones and chocolate. Take a sip and experience rich chocolate, dried fruits and fennel. The long finish falls away with just a hint of spiciness. Ardbeg Twenty Something – something you won’t want to miss.

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.
