Type: Single Malt
Region: Scotland – Islay
Strength: 54.2% alc/vol
Named after a nearby loch (pronounced “Oog-a-dal”).
It’s the perfect example of how sweet and savoury notes can work together spectacularly – you’ll find Ardbeg’s maritime salinity intact here, combined with dried fruit notes imparted by time spent in sherry casks.
Bottled at cask strength and a great value for money Islay whisky.
Nose: Raisins, spicy stewed fruit, then molasses, caramalised sugar, woodsmoke. The nose is so overpowering in its beauty.
Palate: Sweet sherry, old oak, chocolate, the sweetest tarry seaweed and iconic Ardbeg peat smoke that lingers….forever.
Finish: roasted butterscotch, caramal & citrus, peppery peat that lasts.
