One of Ardbeg’s most legendary one-offs. For a distillery known for its profound peat, it's ironic that this is one of 1300 bottles released in 2004 of both unpeated and lightly peated whiskies distilled in 1980. Never-to-be-repeated. A must have for any serious Ardbeg collection. One only.

Other reviews… a breathtaking treat and a masterpiece map of Ardbeg, that no true whisky connoisseur can afford to miss… and proof positive that Ardbeg doesn’t need peat to bring complexity, balance and Scotch Whisky to their highest peaks. 96 points - Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2011

…I’m glad I could finally taste this... The nose starts on fresh apples, apple juice. Develops on mint, peppermint and citronella. Excellent. The mouth is sweet but quite spicy, both peppery and gingery, with quite some wood. In short, it’s bold but very elegant and balanced. So, Ardbeg doesn’t just mean ‘peat’! 5 stars / 90 points
