Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Years Old, the latest permanent expression, has been matured in a combination of ex Bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry butts, and has been bottled non chill-filtered at 47.4% ABV. Wee Beastie’s relative youth harks back to the (now very collectable) Ardbeg Very Young, Still Young and Almost There expressions from the early 2000s, which exhibited the distillery’s distinctive peated style at young ages and tracked the spirit’s evolution into the Ardbeg 10 Years Old.
Nose: Smoke initially, dark dried fruit, liqorice, freshly ground coffee, sea breeze, vanilla.
Palate: Youthfull, lively with a lot of spice, zesty and zingy, earthy.
Finishe: Orchard fruit, spices and big smoke.
