10 year old. 46% Proof. This product is also available as a miniature.
Ardbeg, as a group, had gone back to its original philosophy of producing a variety of younger whiskies which are to be drunk as young as possible. Consequently the 17 year old & older varients were not generally available. This 10 year old Ardbeg offers itself with a smokey briney dryness & the body fills out to a light-heavyweight style. Bottlings can be a little varied.
