Description

Unleash the monstrously good flavors of Ardbeg with this limited-edition trial pack. This collector’s item features three 200ml bottles showcasing the distillery’s core range: Ardbeg Ten, Wee Beastie, and An Oa. Each bottle boasts a unique monster lurking beneath a peelable label, adding a touch of playful horror to your smoky whisky exploration.

A Journey Through Smoke and Flavor

This pack is your gateway to the world of Ardbeg’s signature peaty malts. Here’s a detailed look at the beasts you’ll encounter:

Ardbeg Ten Years Old

The undisputed king of the pack, Ardbeg Ten is a legend for a reason. Prepare for an explosion of crackling peat smoke, interwoven with bursts of tangy citrus, black pepper, and hints of cinnamon-spiced toffee. The smokiness gradually gives way to a wave of creamy buttermilk, ripe bananas, and sweet currants. As the finish lingers, a comforting warmth of toasted marshmallows and cappuccino washes over your palate.

Ardbeg Wee Beastie

Don’t be fooled by its name – this young malt packs a fierce punch. A rich and explosive character unfolds on the tongue, dominated by notes of dark chocolate, creosote, and tar. A powerful blast of eucalyptus mingles with medicinal lozenges and aniseed, creating a complex and intriguing aroma. This is not your typical gentle dram; Wee Beastie is a bold and untamed beast for the adventurous whisky drinker.

Ardbeg An Oa

This intriguing expression offers a departure from the intense smokiness of its counterparts. Matured in a combination of casks, An Oa presents a delightful interplay of smoke, sweetness, and savory notes. Imagine the gentle smokiness of burning applewood intertwined with creamy toffee, aniseed, treacle, and dates. Unexpected bursts of juicy fruits like peach and banana add another layer of intrigue. An Oa is a masterclass in balance, offering a smoky experience that’s both complex and surprisingly refreshing.
