Ardbeg 8 Years Old For Discussion Committee Release is a limited-edition Ardbeg single malt, released for the first time in 2021 exclusively for the Ardbeg Committee. The expression started out as a thought experiment by Master Distiller Bill Lumsden. The younger and smokier whisky, balanced by ex-sherry casks, was created as an alternative for Ardbeg’s flagship 10-year-old expression. Fans are invited to discuss the new whisky on social media using the hashtag #Ardbeg8ForDiscussion. If Ardbeg 8 Years Old gets the Ardbeggians’ approval, it might become the newest addition to the distillery’s core range.
