Ardbeg 10yo
700ml 46.00%
Since Glenmorangie and then Moet Hennessy got behind this distillery, there has been no looking back as this so called "entry level" malt is of a standard that few malts have ever come close to. Clean, precise, intense, complex, mouthfilling and of course highly peaty. Awesome in all departments. Just ask Jim Murray, Franz Scheurer and a raft of other notable whisky scribes. Buxton's 101.

Ardbeg 10yo Warehouse Gift Tin
700ml 46.00%
Ever wanted to own an Ardbeg warehouse? Well here's your big chance! The only thing is that this Ardbeg warehouse only holds 1 x bottle. But what a bottle, as it is the famed, big hearted and well peated Ardbeg 10yo. Limited supply.

Ardbeg Alligator
700ml 51.20%
Here it is, the latest and greatest from Ardbeg...this time the casks are highly toasted to within an in inch of their lives...... From the Malt Advocate, "Similar to the standard Ardbeg 10 year old, except that a portion of the whisky was aged in heavily charred barrels (referred to as an "alligator" char). An aggressive whisky � even for Ardbeg � with a leathery texture throughout. Dynamic too, with coal tar, soot, bourbon barrel char, espresso, cocoa, licorice root, smoked fish, and a hint of ginger. There's a nice creamy vanilla underbelly to balance the aggressiveness and (at least partially) muzzle the Alligator. �John Hansell 92 points."

Ardbeg An Oa
700ml 46.60%
So do we say goodnight to Corryvreckan and say so-long to Uigeadail? That's what I was told, but then others beg to differ. So, meet the new no age statement Ardbeg: An Oa, Is it going to be their replacement? A mix of casks including PX Sherry, Bourbon oak, French oak charred new oak. Dry and sooty is how one pundit put it while Murray rates it at 95.5pts.

Ardbeg Ardbog
700ml 52.10%
Here we go...the latest release for Ardbeg Day. For me this is a mightily impressive dram. And what impresses me most? Is it�s restraint. And it�s richness on the palate. The peat is subtle until the very end, when it kicks in and declares itself as a true Ardbeg. Loads of barley sugar, massive, rich oak, borders on being syrupy but the alcohol and peat keeps it all in check. My rating: Ace! The lad at www,caskstrength.net, "Nose: A briney note hits first, with a touch of liniment, a little coal dust and a wee blast of menthol, all bog wrestling for your attention. Underneath, a slight liquorice root develops, with a sweeter tablet/vanilla rich chocolate note, some white pepper and a waft of wood smoke. Palate: The coal notes develop, with salt-crusted barbecued pork, some drying oak notes and a hint of sweet tablet again, backdropped by a luscious coating of smoky hickory wood. The mouthfeel is rich and unctuous and very easy drinking, despite its strength. Finish: Lengthy iodine and singed BBQ pork give the palate a formidable run for its money. Overall: Boom. This is absolutely sterling stuff, raised from the very bowels of the peat bogs, but with so much more alongside. Whereas last year's Ardbeg Day was a little threadbare in places, this is a full on 15-tog-patchwork-quilt of a whisky, bristling with character. "

Ardbeg Auriverdes
700ml 49.90%
Ardbeg Day 2014 Release It's all about football but the dram is highly intriguing. Fuller notes to follow...but in the meantime here's some official notes, "The casks are American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels, which were shipped over from the United States as per the norm. The insides of the barrels had therefore been charred in the traditional, Bourbon specification manner. From Caskstrength.com, "Nose: Hot, with some distinct Ardbeg smokiness (sweet cure bacon), alongside a little dry spiciness, a big waft of vanilla pipe tobacco, expresso coffee, a touch of ginger and an injection of some lighter citrus zest - fresh lemon and lime. It's powerful, but with a light touch alongside - think Didier Drogba... Palate: More classic Ardbeg fullness, the smoke turning a little more medicinal, with greener notes (fresh orchard fruit) and something a little more savoury - sweet potato perhaps? There is a youthful zestiness at play too but the mouthfeel is superb, with more smoked meat, vanilla and a candied sweetness - the 10 year old is a good reference point, but it has a little more depth alongside. Finish: Surprisingly dry, with a lingering oaky spice, some sooty residue and a last-gasp citrus bite."

Ardbeg Blasda
700ml 40.00%
The toned down Ardbeg 10yo? 8ppm of peat, an alcohol strength of 40%, contained in a clear glass bottle and highly contentious too. Not surprisingly my notes still refer to peat!!

Ardbeg Corryvreckan
700ml 57.10%
It comes from Ardbeg's experiments in the late 1990's and suprisngly is matured or part matured in French oak along with the usual ex Bousbon oak. Belived to be a marriage of Ardbeg's 10yo and Uigeadail. From John Hansell, Malt Advocate, "Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit."

Ardbeg Day Exclusive Committee Release
700ml 56.70%
This is the 2012 Committee release and I'm led to believe that it is assembly of two vintages matured in bourbon casks and then married / finished in refill sherry casks previously used for Ardbeg Uigeadail. Bottled at cask strength 56,7%.

Ardbeg Grooves
700ml 46.00%
Regular release for the “summer of peat & love.” The style of this strident dram is based on heavily charred red wine casks. As you can imagine, loads of oak competes witht he alcohol and peat. But it is still in balance.

Ardbeg Kelpie
700ml 46.00%
A marriage of American and Russian Black Sea oak and that full on Ardbeg peat. Rich and intensive. This is the commercial release from 2017.

Ardbeg Kelpie 2017 Committee Release
700ml 51.70%
A marriage of American and Russian Black Sea oak and that full on Ardbeg peat. Released in 2017.

Ardbeg Perpetuum
700ml 47.40%
Brand new for June 2015 and of course very limited in supply. I'll leave it to Doug from ForWhiskyLOvers, "Aroma: Mellow, rich and enticing, with the unmistakable Ardbeggian combination of tar, soot and pine resin. A remarkably fresh bouquet for such a peaty whisky. Taste: Creamy and mouth-chilling, slightly chewy. Finish: Intense, robust peat smoke, savory smoky bacon, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also an incredible creamy, sweet vanilla/milk chocolate note, which soothes the palate. Only 6,600 bottles of Perpetuum have been released worldwide, so this truly is a limited edition whisky. So if you want a bottle, get it now..." And from Huon Hooke in The Age, "Commemorating Ardbeg�s 200th anniversary in 2015, this is unbelievably peaty � even for Islay. It�s a fantastic spirit, aromatic and intense, with penetrating flavour , but not sharp. A most impressive malt."

Ardbeg Twenty Something 23yo
700ml 46.30%
A 2017 release of Ardbeg's oldest spirit to date. A mix of Bourbon and Oloroso sherry oak leaves this well-aged dram according to Dr Bill, "deep, rich, smoky and silky."

Ardbeg Uigeadail
700ml 54.20%
The Uigeadail adds sherry to the Ardbeg range, and a mighty fine dram it is. Very intense, lots of peat (as you could imagine) but the addition of fino sherry oak along with the trademark bourbon wood to the mix, adds another dimension to this champion malt. Buxton's 101 & 97.5pts Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2010.

Douglas Laing Big Peat Islay Blended Malt Whisky 40ppm
700ml 46.00%
A blended whisky that is surprisingly made up from single malts from Coal Ila, Bowmore, Ardbeg and Port Ellen! Heavy smoke and cut grass as one pundit put it. And for Christmas 2018 - every bottle gets a free Neat Whisky glass!!

Ardbeg 17yo Old Bottling
700ml 40.00%
RARE Oh how I fondly remember this gem which was launched in 1997 just after Glenmorangie bought the distillery. Sadly it didn't last very long as it was discontinued in 2004. The original official 1999 tasting notes read, "Nose: The gentlest of peats, yet deep and confident with an enticing sweetness - a heady mixture of malt and vanillins. Vaguely salty and very complex with oak present but very much in harness. Just a hint of bourbon and even a fainter hint of tangy orange to widen the spectrum. Taste: There is a much greater presence of peat in the taster than the nose suggests. The smokiness quickly hits the palate and then tapers off. That said, the middle shows an excellent chewy malt alongside a touch of cocoa. Finish: The peat returns and guarantees and enormously long finale. The taste of the malt clings and hints of liquorice and dry toast are detected. This form of oakiness continues but never becomes sappy or too dry as the peat balances this out beautifully." Actual pic shown.

Ardbeg 1999 13yo Galileo
700ml 49.00%
From Possible Failure...Comes a brilliant new Ardbeg star! Enough of the Sicilian-ness, this latest offering from Lumsden's skunk works proves to be a most intriguing and dare I say daring experiment that almost went wrong. Lumsden team's use of Sicilian Marsala casks didn't turn out as expected, in his words, "too syrupy and bit too treacly." So a dose of classic Ardbeg was called for. From the well known blogger Billy, "Nose: Soft, sweet peat, sweet spirity notes, tarred ropes, coal dust, barbequed pineapple (� la St Heston of Bray), a touch of dirty sump oil, pine needles, freshly smashed-open coconut, dry breadcrumbs and crushed seashells. Palate: The first thing I noticed was that it wasn�t as sweet as the nose might have suggested, at least not in an upfront syrupy way. Instead it had unsweetened tropical fruit and sharp edged Fruit Salad chews, filled out with rich fruitcake sweetness, although this is Ardbeg so it was more a �smoked fruitcake� hit, along with cold coal stoves, dark wood, a hint of leaf mulch and some sea spray. Finish: On the swallow there was a burst of tarry phenols, which faded to leave lingering damp wood and leaves." And from Gavin D Smith's Whisky Pages - Whisky Of The Year (no age) 2012!

Ardbeg 21yo Twenty One Committee Release
700ml 46.00%
The first age stated Ardbeg release in yonks. Released in 2016 and yes, it has a little red imprint on the back label, declaring it to be a Committee release.

Ardbeg Corryvreckan1st Release
700ml 57.10%
If you've missed the advertising on this new Ardbeg, then I suggest you hunt it out. Great stuff. So, another new Ardbeg, once again very limited but I do hear that it is to replace the Beist! So I wonder what's next? It comes from Ardbeg's experiments in the late 1990's and suprisngly is matured or part matured in French oak along with the usual ex Bousbon oak. Belived to be a marriage of Ardbeg's 10yo and Uigeadail.. From John Hansell, Malt Advocate, "Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. The more aggressive notes of coal tar, damp kiln, anise and smoked seaweed are supported by an array of fruit."
