Ardbeg lights up their "little monster" Islay Single Malt as a core offering designed for the modern Whisky palate.
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 greatest blended Scotches. But true Single Malt releases are in high demand and they consistently deliver.
We LOVE the name — Ardbeg Wee Beastie. Isn’t that great? This Single Malt is called a little monster. And it lives up to its name. It’s the newest addition to the core Ardbeg line-up and it’s both sharp and smoky. Now, you probably expect an Islay Single Malt to be smoky. But this is a younger dram of five years in the barrel, so the smoke shines even brighter. But you still have all the greatness of the Ardbeg we all know and love at an attractive price point. It’s like finding a Ferrari at half price.
