Ardbeg Kelpie

An Ardbeg that's said to be "as deep as the ocean" thanks to the use of virgin Black Sea oak casks sourced by Dr. Bill Lumsden from the Adyghe Republic in Russia. Whisky from these casks has then been married with regular bourbon cask matured Ardbeg and bottled for Fèis Ìle 2017 at 46%. The kelpie from which this release takes its name is a mischievous water spirit, which might be able to take the form of a horse, or a bull, and may have claws, or be a dog with the head of an ant, that flies. Or Crab Nicholson.
