This limited-edition single malt from Ardbeg distillery – Drum – was released for Ardbeg Day, during Feis Ile 2019. Matured in ex-bourbon casks and rested in ex-rum casks, this is a funky, flamboyant whisky. The nose is full of ripe banana, pineapple, cocoa and woodsmoke aromas, with hints of fresh ginger, cinnamon and lavender developing slowly. The palate offers notes of black pepper, ginger, clove and liquorice, alongside dark chocolate, rich smoke and vanilla. An intensely smoky, fruity dram, Ardbeg Drum is the perfect way to celebrate Feis Ile.
An attractive gift set comprising three alluring Ardbeg expressions, the Exploration Pack is one to pick up if you’re a fan of the famously complex and smoky whisky. This neat little pack contains miniature 5cl bottles of Ardbeg Uigeadail and Corryvreckan, and also a 70cl bottle of the Ten Years Old.
Non chill-filtered at 46% ABV.
Smoky. Sweet. Singularly rounded.
Dram with smoky power, mellowed by a delectable, smooth sweetness. Signature Ardbeg peat, dark chocolate and aniseed are wrapped in smooth, silky butterscotch, black pepper and clove, before rising to an intense crescendo of flavour.

Tasting Note :
Ardbeg presents an intensely mellow dram, smoked spices combine with distant bonfires fading into a mellow haze of apples and smoked pear.
Ardbeg Grooves has been laid down in wine casks, intensely charred to produce heavy grooves on the surface of the wood. The result is a whisky aromatic with smoked spices and distant bonfires, sweet vibes of vanilla popcorn and smoky soot fading into a mellow haze of apples, fresh flowers and smoked pear.
