Ardbeg Drum

For this year’s Ardbeg Day and the Fèis Ìle (Islay Festival of Music and Malt) Ardbeg went Caribbean with the release of their Ardbeg Drum. This is the first time the distillery has taken their whisky and finished it off in ex-rum casks from the Americas. To me, this was music to my ears because…

Ardbeg: Distillery Tour

The first distillery we visited and toured while in Islay was Ardbeg. Out of all the distilleries in Islay, Ardbeg whisky is the peatiest. Their peat is peated to 50ppm (parts per million) and is sourced from Port Ellen. If you don’t like peat, then you will most certainly not like Ardbeg, but that shouldn’t…

Ardbeg 10 year old

Let me start by saying that Ardbeg is one of my very favorite Single malt Scotch whiskies. The first time I tried Ardbeg I was in San Diego about 2 years ago attending a friend’s wedding. While out at a whisky bar I wanted to try something smoky and different, so the bartender suggested Ardbeg….
