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.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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).
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
