Edition No. 2 of Ardbeg’s incredibly popular Traigh Bhan Single Malt is a nineteen year-old lesson in balance and complexity.
In an age of Whisky start-ups, Ardbeg is refreshing blast from the past. They have been making Malt Whisky on the same site since 1798. The product was so popular that they ramped up production to commercial levels in 1815. That’s more than two-hundred years of Single Malt wonder. Like nearly all of her Islay sisters, Ardbeg is a peated dram. But Ardbeg is known for gentle smoky smoothness with the vast majority of production going into the world’s greatest blended Scotches. But true Single Malt releases are in high demand and they consistently deliver.
Traigh Bhan started as a special edition. But it turned out so great that customers couldn’t get enough of it, so they have added it to the core lineup in limited releases each year. Ardbeg Traigh Bhan Batch 2 is the signature Ardbeg, lightly peated Single Malt that’s been aged in a combination of Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks for a full nineteen years and bottled without chill-filtration at 46.2% ABV. The result is a remarkably balanced and harmonious Single Malt luxury with every sip.
