The Enduring Spirit of Ardbeg:
Argdbeg Twenty Something. Return to the Ardbeg Distillery of 22 year ago, and taste exquisite spirit it produced.
By the end of the 20th Century, the future of Ardbeg hung in the balance. With stills often times empty, and filling room silent, a group of whisky craftsmen set aside stocks of Ardbeg spirit in a quiet corner of the warehouse, in the hope that it would one day be shared with the world.
A young Mickey Heads-- now our esteemed Distillery Manager-- was among. It was their optimism that restored the Distillery, and etched Ardbeg's name into the annals of whisky history.
Today, visitors to Ardbeg are greeted by the very still that helped create this whisky. Retired and enjoying time as an Islay icon, it stands proud in front of the Distillery. Now Mickey is equally proud to introduce this remarkable whisky.
On the nose, luscious tropical fruits fade into sweet smoke, soot and tar. On the palate, fresh green apples with a crumble topping. Notes of peppermint tea and vanilla flow into a long smoky finish.
Born out of hope, determination and a touch of idealism, this bottling is a tribute to the momentous moment when a handful of faithful believers decided to keep Ardbeg alive.
