Every September now marks an exciting time in the Ardbeg calendar as they launch a new batch of Ardbeg 19 YO or fondly called the Ardbeg Traigh Bhan (pronounced tri-van). It is time to release Ardbeg Traigh Bhan batch 2

Inspired by the Singing Sands of Islay, this rare, small batch 19 Year Old Ardbeg reveals captivating notes of gentle, wood smoke, with gusts of fresh sea spray and eucalyptus on the nose.  An oily mouthfeel leads into rich fudge, before smoky peat and aniseed crash down on the palate.  Savoury and smoke combine in a sharp, intense and satisfyingly long finish. From the Ardbeg Distillery to Port Ellen and beyond, follow the rocky coast and you will discover the heavenly vista of Traigh Bhan, the beautiful beach known locally as the Singing Sands.. This captivating place has white soft sands that sing beneath your feet, a hum that ebbs and flows with the winds and the tides. But beguiling as this place is, do not drop your guard. Bathing is ill advised in the seemingly tame crystal waters where jagged, volcanic rocks piece the sands along the shore, and plenty of this you will see on the packaging itself
