TASTING NOTES
Chocolate eclair sweets and dry coastal driftwood, toffee and refreshers sweets with but a hint of gentle smoke. Despite these dangerously low levels of peat, this is still characteristically Ardbeg. The palate is a lovely herbal development and all the time the sweetness of vanilla and peppermint creams with the semi medicinal undertones of Resolve hangover cure. The finish is of the minty sweetness of the peppermint creams with an interesting little development of sticking plasters.

HISTORY
One of the original Kildalton distilleries, situated on the southern shore of the island. The present distillery was built on the site of an illicit distillery, of which there were many in the area, in 1815. Ardbeg, unlike its neighbours Laphroaig and Lagavulin, has not enjoyed the same uninterrupted period of production since its opening.
 
In fact between 1981 and 1989 it was famously closed, whilst the then owners Allied distillers decided what to do with the distillery. It was re-opened in 1990 but only operated up to 6 weeks of the year from 1991 until 1996 when the distillery closed again...for good.
In 1997 the Glenmorangie company bought the distillery and all its stock, re-starting distillation in earnest in 1998, bringing much needed stability and expertise in maturation particularly. In effect they had resurrected a slumbering beast.
 
One of, if not the most, heavily peated malts from anywhere in Scotland, Ardbeg's pure spring water comes from Loch Uigeadail (the dark, mysterious place in Gaelic) via another loch called Airigh Nam Beist (shelter of the beast).
