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.

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.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
