If you’re lucky ..
I was strongly discouraged to try Ardbeg 10yr, I did. I couldn’t believe this taste from another world, got drunk while trying to get to know it and fell in love with whisky.
Everyone has their story about entering the world of whisky. If you’re lucky, the opportunity for that will come to you at a time when you’re skipping out on stories and recommendations, but instead, you will let it victimize you for what it is.
Ardbeg, the Ultimate Islay Malt has today revealed its plans for the 2017 Ardbeg Day celebrations.
On 3rd June, the Distillery will pay homage to the sea surrounding Islay and the mythical sea creatures that live beneath. Participants in Ardbeg Day will be plunged deep under the sea to help celebrate the launch of Ardbeg Kelpie with a day filled with mystery, food, games… and of course, Ardbeg Single Malt.
Ardbeg is set to bring Islay’s Festival of Music and Malt to a close on Ardbeg Day, the global celebration of the single malt’s untamed spirit.
Ardbeg Day falls on Saturday, 3rd June 2017. This year, in homage to the sea that surrounds the Distillery’s remote Scottish island home, Ardbeg will again release a celebratory Limited Edition expression. Ardbeg Kelpie is the first Ardbeg to be matured in Virgin Black Sea oak casks. Renowned for the deep flavours that they impart and rarely used in whisky making – these casks bring a distinct intensity to the world’s smokiest, peatiest Islay malt whisky.
Ardbeg 10 yr
For the peat lovers among us, this classic Islay whisky is a must to try. Ardbeg says to be the most peaty Islay whisky, that saying, makes you curious, doesn’t it.
Ardbeg was founded in the year 1815 and is a peaty, smoky Islay malt whisky. The water from the distillery is coming from Loch Uigeadail, pronounced oog-a-dal.
