Ardbeg 25 Years released

The oldest whisky of the Ardbeg core range

 

Since the announcement in a newsletter in November 2020, Ardbeg fans have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the announced Ardbeg 25 Years, which should enrich the core range. Now the time has come: Moet Hennessy gave the go-ahead for sales today. Reason enough, after the news about the Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg! a few days ago to add another to the popular Islay whisky.

It can be expected that it will not be long before the Ardbeg 25 Years has been sold out. This was already the case in the Ardbeg online shop shortly after it was published. So if you want to get your hands on one of it, be attentiv and watch your retailer’s offers. On social media, Ardbeg responded to inquiries about availability in this regard, saying that it is a permanent member of the range and that there would be a batch again later in the year.

The Ardbeg 25 Years is bottled at 46% ABV without chill-filtration. Unfortunately, nothing has been officially announced about the casks that were used, but tasting notes about the new old product have been given.

Producer's tasting notes for the Ardbeg 25 Years

COLOUR Bright Amber

AROMA A pungent burst of smoked cream, peppermint and toffee, with Ardbeg’s classic fennel and pine resin. Distant earthy bonfires mix with herbal and fruity (banana and tropical) notes, along with fragrant candle wax.

TASTE An extremely vibrant, hot peppery mouthfeel leads into a burst of sherbet lemon sweetness (candied apples, pears and orange), hints of carbolic soap and tar, more creamy toffee, aniseed and chilli pepper.

FINISH A long, mellow, lingering aftertaste, with lots of cream, fudge and delicate antiseptic notes. An elegant, soothing style of Ardbeg.
