This year’s Limited Edition bottling, Ardbeg Drum is a scrumptious jamboree of flavours and the perfectly peaty excuse for a party.
Inspired by Islay’s rich history of carnivals, this whisky is a bottling imbued with the ultimate influence of carnival spirit, rum. In a first for the Distillery, they have taken Ardbeg single malt from ex-Bourbon casks, rested it awhile in ex-rum casks from the Americas, to bring you…Ardbeg Drum.
Nose - Smoked apple and pineapple, ripe banana, fragrant pine resin and subtle woodsmoke. Dry coco powder, cinnamon and ginger spiced dates and ‘floating’ lavender notes.
Palate - Peppery texture, huge smoky palate, oil, tar, creosote, rich dark chocolate. A treasure of spices – clove, liquorice and ginger mingles with smoked vanilla.
Finish - Intense smoke on the finish, more spice with a sweet coffee liqueur finish.
