Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg Committee Exclusive Bottling

21st January 2021
Ardbeg has announced the release date for their pirate themed Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg Committee exclusive bottling which has been bottled to mark the 13 years Mickey Heads spent at the helm of the distillery.

Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg Committee Bottling

As I am sure the Ardbeg fans amongst you will know that in October 2020 Ardbeg Distillery Manager Mickey Heads set down his hydrometer for the last time after 13 years producing one of the smokiest drams on Islay. To mark Mickey's retirement and commemorate his 13 years at the helm of the good ship Ardbeg the distillery has unveiled Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg, a Ardbeg Committee exclusive limited edition bottling.

The pirate themed Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg is the distillery's first ever whisky matured in ex-rye casks and will only be available to the Ardbeg Committee members so if you want to taste it get yourself over to the Ardbeg website and join the Ardbeg Committee before it is released in the UK on the 2nd February 2021 when members will receive an email in the morning with a link giving them the chance to buy a bottle.

You will also find the current Ardbeg whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt

Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg Committee Exclusive Bottling Review

Matured in ex-rye casks and bottled at 58.1% ABV.

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Aromas of gunpowder, smoked banana and pears drift into some rye bread, sweet vanilla toffee and a gentle aniseed breeze.

Taste: A blunderbuss ignites fruity aromas such as melons and kiwis. An armada of anise appears, accompanied by smoked toffee and a hint of sweet sourdough rolls.

Finish: A long finish leaves a salty spray with Brazil nuts and gentle smoke aromas that linger on the palate for a long time.
