Ardbeg Wee Beastie

£35.00

Bottle Size 70cl
Alcohol 47.4% ABV
Age 5 years
Ardbeg's youngest whisky yet, Wee Beastie accentuates the raw power of Islay whisky. Intensely smoky, with notes of cracked black pepper, tar and meat, it's not for the faint hearted. Known as the 'enfant terrible' of the spirit world, Ardbeg Wee Beastie is a test of youthfulness in a world dominated by aged whiskies.
Cask Type Ex-Bourbon & Oloroso
Though the liquid has been aged for just five years in ex-bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, it offers a formidable bite, and is the proof that unusual can be iconic too.
Style Single Malt Whisky
Bottler Ardbeg
Distillery Ardbeg
Country Scotland
Region Islay
For over 200 years, Ardbeg has been made on the remote Scottish isle of Islay. This new single-malt style showcases the daring, experimental side of the distillery. You have to try it to believe it.
Chill Filtered No
Closure Cork
Colour/Appearance Bright Gold (Auric)
Nose
he first sniff alerts you to a nearby presence… heightened senses are filled with very bright, fresh herbal notes, with creeping hints of vanilla and pear. Rich Turkish coffee mingles with sappy pine resin, with honey-glazed ham lurking in the background. With water, more herbal top notes like vetiver and fennel captivate and pull you in, while beguiling scents of aniseed, green apple and leather cause you to drop your guard. Out of nowhere, a sharp tang of smoke and a crack of fresh black pepper fire warning shots across the senses.
Palate
A rich, explosive mouthfeel with lots of chocolate, tar, creosote and smoked bacon, followed by a burst of antiseptic lozenges, eucalyptus and more aniseed.
Finish
A long, salty and mouthcoating finish with hints of cocoa, fudge and savoury meats.
