A tiny bit of sherry, a lot of citrus, spices and smoke and then some peat maybe? Welcome to the Ardbeg 19 Years Old Traigh Bhan Batch 1, the newest small batch expression by Islay based distillery Ardbeg. It’s inspired by the Traigh Bhan beach on Islay, which is famous for it’s palm trees and white sands. Lol. We funny. The beach is cold, rocky and deep: a perfect muse for a rough whisky like this.
