Ardbeg is first and foremost one of the classic, peat-laden single malts in the smoky, Islay style. But it is also one of the sweetest, so you get an interesting combination of smoke, fruit, peat, and honey vanilla. And since the distillery sits right on the coast (seriously, any close and it would have to float), you definitely get hints of sea salt and lime. It's not a "peat monster" test of manhood kind of Whisky, but it has full-throated flavor to spare.

What does Ardbeg taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Ardbeg scotch whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
