Ardbeg Grooves Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
Every year we are blessed with a limited edition bottling to celebrate a special day in our calendars, Ardbeg day! The hype starts around 2 weeks prior to the event and limited edition cask strength bottles start to do there rounds of the bars and Ardbeg Embassy’s around the world. On Ardbeg day we get to celebrate the smoky tasty goodness that is Ardbeg and realise which friends we share this intriguing taste profile with.
This years limited release has been named Grooves and Director of Distilling Dr Bill Lumsden has not only used American oak ex-bourbon barrels to mature this Ardbeg Day release he has matured part of the whisky in re-toasted red wine casks.
This has created more intense flavours of smoked spices, smouldering embers and chilli-seasoned meats.
‘These days the Ardbeg community is a worldwide one, and Ardbeg Day is the best way for us all to come together and raise a dram to the ultimate Islay single malt.’
