Ardbeg The Three Monsters Of Smoke has the perfect whiskies to drink this Halloween (or any other day, if you’re feeling spooky). This amazing gift set features three iconic smoky monsters from the Islay distillery Ardbeg. A unique artwork is hidden behind each label, simply peel to reveal yours. The set includes Ardbeg’s flagship Ten Years Old, the complex An Oa, and the youthful 5-year-old Wee Beastie.
Ardbeg 10 Years Old
Ardbeg 10 Years Old is the original giant. The flagship expression in Ardbeg’s core range is peaty and complex, with a sublime balance of fruity floral sweetness and bold spice. The whisky matured for 10 years in ex-bourbon American oak casks and is bottled at 46% ABV.
Ardbeg An Oa
Ardbeg An Oa is a newer addition to Ardbeg’s core range. This innovative single malt is inspired by the Mull of Oa, the cliffs which protect the distillery from the rough Atlantic Ocean. The whisky first matured in a combination of Pedro Ximénez, virgin charred oak and ex-bourbon casks. It was then married together in Ardbeg’s unique Gathering Vat. This giant French oak marrying tun was specially created by Dr. Bill Lumsden to allow whiskies from several casks to become a rounded whole. The result is a complex single malt that is smooth without losing its smoky character.
Ardbeg 5 Years Old Wee Beastie
Cask: Bourbon & Oloroso Sherry
Wee Beastie is the newest expression in Ardbeg’s Ultimate Range, and the youngest Ardbeg whisky ever made. It matured for 5 years in a combination of ex-bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry casks, and is bottled at 47.4% ABV. Described as a ‘monster of a dram’, Ardbeg 5 Years Old Wee Beastie is a powerful smoky single malt.
