These extraordinary giants of the whiskey realm have been spotted in glasses all over the world, delighting palates, overwhelming taste buds, and captivating senses wherever they are enjoyed.
Included in this set are three 200 ml bottles:
Ten Years Old: This expression is revered worldwide for being the most intensely peaty, smoky, and intricately flavored Single Malt. It offers a perfect balance of fruity and floral sweetness alongside complexity. Aged in ex-Bourbon American Oak casks, it exhibits a harmonious blend of sweet vanilla and robust spice. Ardbeg's flagship whisky, it embodies the finest qualities of Islay.
Wee Beastie: Ardbeg's newest permanent expression, and also their youngest, Wee Beastie undergoes maturation in a combination of Ex-Bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks for a mere five years. The youthfulness of this whisky intensifies its smoky character, setting it apart from other Islay Malts. It delivers a rich and explosive mouthfeel with prominent notes of chocolate, tar, creosote, and smoked bacon, followed by a burst of antiseptic lozenges, eucalyptus, and aniseed.
An Oa: Drawing inspiration from the protective cliffs of the Mull of Oa, which shield the Ardbeg distillery from the untamed Atlantic Ocean, An Oa embraces a harmonious interplay of contrasting flavors. This expression combines the finest casks, achieving a balance between roundness and Ardbeg's signature intensity. The whiskies used in its creation are matured in Pedro Ximénez casks for sweetness, Virgin Charred Oak casks for spiciness, and ex-Bourbon American Oak casks for intensity. These distinct elements are skillfully brought together in the bespoke Gathering Vat, resulting in a complex and captivating whisky experience.
