Description

Ardbeg Galileo was one of 2012's most eagerly awaited releases.  It is made up from casks distilled in 1999, some of which spent their full term of maturation in casks that previously held Marsala wine.  This gives sweet tropical fruit flavours to the malt.  Galileo's concept is in celebration of the well-publicised experiment whereby small quantities of Ardbeg were sent into space at the end of 2011 to see how they mature in zero gravity.
