A limited-edition Ardbeg that's spent its 21 years in a bourbon cask. This single malt was released in 2016 to the Ardbeg Committee, the distillery's fan club, and was created on the still which now stands outside Ardbeg. It commemorates both a time when the distillery's future was uncertain and the people who ensured that it still stands today.

Ardbeg Twenty One Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Sparkling pale gold.

    Nose: A beautiful, sumptuous but curious mix of tarry smoke, Ardbeg ice cream and black pepper.  Some green leafy herbal top notes are then discovered, like Fennel or Basil.  A splash of water releases sweet toffee, popcorn and buttery oak, but always anchored by Ardbeg’s sooty, tarry smoke.

    Taste: An intense, peppery, ‘fizzy’ mouthfeel gives way to rich flavours of liquorice/aniseed, marzipan, toasted rye bread, charcoal and peppermint.  The harmonious, integrated flavour lingers, with more creamy vanilla, sweet notes, and a dash of spice.

    Finish: Long and lingering, but quite gentle, almost soothing, with more coal tar, aniseed and smoky butter.
