Founded in the year 2000, the Ardbeg committee marks the occasion every year with a special release. This release celebrates 20 years of releases with the Ardbeg Blaaack.
This limited edition is feisty and unique in the same breath. Its the first time in the distilleries history that they have used Pinot Noir casks from the country that lies the furthest distance from Islay - New Zealand.
The legendary have knitted together this special release to give hints of "velvety summer fruit pudding and bitter cherry, with a deeper edge of soot and Ardbeg’s hallmark smoke."
The Grand Whisky Auction is very proud to have this bottling as their bonus bottle in the February auction of 2020.
Sláinte to all the Ardbeg committee members out there!
