Join us on Friday, June 26, 2020 at 10PM EDT / 7PM PDT for a LIVE tasting of the latest addition to Ardbeg’s core range, their 5 year old Wee Beastie. Be sure to log on to our YouTube Channel or Facebook Page and comment / ask questions as we work our way through what promises to be a mighty dram!
Here’s some information about what we’ll be tasting:
SOMETHING BIG AND SMOKY…
Our whisky creators set out to make the rawest, smokiest Ardbeg ever. The result is Ardbeg Wee Beastie and this tongue-tingling, beautifully smoky dram is the youngest Ardbeg we’ve ever made.
On the snout, intense aromas of cracked blacked pepper mingle with sappy pine resin and a sharp tang of smoke. Suddenly, an explosive mouthfeel bursts forth with chocolate, creosote and tar. Savoury meats sink into the palate before the long salty mouthcoating finish slinks away… revealing the inner beast of this Islay icon.
Young and intensely smoky, this is a dram untamed by age. Matured in ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, Wee Beastie is perfect for enjoying neat or as the mouth-watering main ingredient in a powerfully smoky cocktail.
Non chill-filtered at 47.4%.
