Smoky Scotsman joins a tropical carnival.
Ardbeg Distillery is older than tin cans or typewriters. It was founded in 1798 on the southern coast of Islay, five minutes away from Lagavulin. It closed down in 1981, was brought back by Glenmorangie in 1997, and bought by LVHM in 2004. Ardbeg uses only two pot stills yet produces over a million liters each year. Their Scotch was even sent to the ISS in 2011 to see how it interacts with wood in space. We doubt it came back, though. We even spotted a bottle of Ardbeg in Keanu Reeve’s The Constantine back in 2005. The cool thing about Ardbeg is that they bottle their Scotch above the minimum 40% ABV and is one of the rare distilleries to use a purifier (which means smoother Whisky).
Now, they present us a rare and premium expression that was matured in ex-Rum barrels. They call it Drum and it celebrates the holy Ardbeg day with a flood of flavors and mesmerizing  tropical twist. This one-of-a-kind release invites you with aromas of woodsmoke, ripe bananas and lavender to experience the lush flavors of smoke, vanilla and dark chocolate. Certain religions would declare such a heavenly Scotch a sin, while we bask in its decadent sensations.

*This bottle is a collector's item, we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges.

**Individual orders limited to one item per person, as we wish to give everyone the opportunity to participate.

***Any kind of transit damage is insured and will be reimbursed.

What does Ardbeg Drum Limited Edition taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Ardbeg Drum Limited Edition and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

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

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.

Extremely smoky finish with a touch of sweet spices and roasted coffee.
Ratings & Reviews
I was a bit disappointed... the tropical flavors are subtle. I’ll stick with Corryvreckan, thank you.
Campfire smoke with some tropical fruit on the nose! Palate was initially smoky (as you’d expect with Ardbeg), followed by a quick flash of zesty fruit, then vanilla sweetness. Finish is long lasting with spicy ginger and black pepper notes.
Sweet and smoky. Fantastic taste.
Very sweet, the bananas pop out pretty quickly on the tongue, and it ends with a nice smoky finish.
Truly a tropical feel. Pineapple. And of course the traditional smoke and peat. A nice expression with some unique is flavors. Worth a try.
It's everything it says it is. This I rank with the no longer available Ardbeg's Lord of the Isles.
