Ardbeg "Twenty Something" 23 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1331343

From the distillery: The nearest thing to being able to step back in time to the Ardbeg Distillery of yesteryear, is to taste the spirit it produced. Ardbeg Twenty Something is a rare Limited Edition Committee bottling from 23 long years ago. On the nose, sweet wood smoke and vanilla cream mingle with sherry notes, burning pine cones and chocolate. Take a sip and experience rich chocolate, dried fruits and fennel. The long finish falls away with just a hint of spiciness.

Here's what I will tell you about the new Ardbeg 23 year old committee release that just landed in our warehouse today: I was lucky enough to try it a few months back when Ardbeg's distiller Dr. Bill Lumsden was in town for a promotional tour and we got the chance to eat lunch together. He pulled out a small flask and poured me a glass, asking me what I thought about the whisky without telling me what it was. I was utterly entranced by it. It was so soft and silky compared to the powerful and high proof Ardbegs like the Uigeadail and Corryvreckan. The smoke was heavy, but it was muted by rounded vanilla and creamy malt flavors. I knew it had to be old. The finish went on forever and I just sat there grinning as I licked my lips and asked him what I had just experienced. Bill smiled and said it was the upcoming Ardbeg "Twentysomething," a new committee bottling from the distillery planned for a winter release in the states. It's by the far the most luxurious Ardbeg I've tasted since the 1977 and Lord of the Isles releases of long ago and it's a legit, top shelf single malt.
