Ardbeg Serendipity 12 Year Old Limited Release Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

SCOTLAND
$399.00 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

We've one bottle only to sell of this curio that evoked a combination of cynicism and praise when it was released as the result of a 'blending accident' - see below. Evidently, in the late 1990s, there was a product called "80:20" which was 80% Glenmorangie and 20% something else, and with an identical marketing speel from Glenmorangie. It would have been a no brainer to repeat the 'accident', but a stroke of genius was required to make it seem plausible a second time.

Other reviews... Serendipity came about as a result of an error, when two parts of 12-year-old Glen Moray were inadvertently vatted with eight parts of much older Ardbeg. Indeed, the Ardbeg could be approaching its quarter-century. Cynics may suggest this smacks of something dreamt up by a marketing department, but whatever its origins, this 'Ardbeg Lite' blended malt whisky has much to commend it. The Glen Moray has given Serendipity a sweeter, more floral nose than is usual with Ardbeg. On the palate the defining dry, earthy, peat notes of Ardbeg lurk beneath a soft, mellow peachy character, but they remain steadfastly present. The result is notably harmonious. An inspired accident? 40.0% - www.whisky-pages.com
