The ten years old Ardbeg is one of the classics of the Islay Whiskys. It is bottled with 46% and non-filtered, uniting smoke and sweetness. The deep peat-flavours are getting detached by the typical citrus freshness.
The name Ardbeg means as much as 'little hill'. It is located at the southern coast of the whisky island Islay between Port Ellen and Kildalton. The location already has been popular for illegal distilleries. After a history with ups and downs including temporary close-downs the distillery was inherited by Glenmorangie PLC in 1997, which were themselves bought by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy in 2004. Today it is one of the most famous distilleries in Scotland, known for its smokey, peaty and salty bottlings with strong note of phenol. Two bottlings are named like the lakes the water of the distillery comes from: Loch Arinambeast and Loch Uigeadail. In 2015 Ardbeg celebrated its bicentenary.
