The most deeply charred casks ever deployed at Arbeg yield an Islay dram more smoky and briny than good manners might allow, but for which Islay lovers will be grateful.

In an age of Whisky start-ups, Ardbeg is a 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.

In their promotion for this release, Arbeg called it a "Flavor Breathing Dragon." Whereupon we all slapped our collective Flaviar foreheads wishing we’d thought of that first.

Ardbeg Scorch Limited Edition Fiercely Charred Cask is anything but shy. Picture if you will, Ardbeg’s signature peat-infused Islay Single Malt aged in ex-Bourbon casks that have been re-charred to the point of near oblivion. And while many Scotch aficionados are fond of sipping Single Malt while enjoying a cigar, in the case only the dram is needed.

Smartass Corner:
"Scorch" is the semi-official name of the mythic dragon of Islay. More marketing myth than Druidic legend, but a fun mascot nevertheless.

  • ashy ashy
  • smoky smoky
  • fire fire
  • brine brine
  • oily oily
  • woody woody
  • orange orange
  • mint mint
  • lemon lemon

Appearance / Color
Antique Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is an intense exercise in soot, ash, campfire smoke, and brine with a waft of incense over the top.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens with a slick, almost oily mouth-feel leads to layers of rich, smoked lemons and oranges, exotic woods, menthol, and a nice sweetness hiding nearby.

Finish
The finish has been called heroically long with little but thick puffs of smoky brine crashing on your palate.
