Description

A monster of a dram! This young and intensely smokey dram is said to be so fierce it wrecks everything in its path! This is the first new single malt since 2019 Traigh Bhan 19YO.  There are lots of things in this world that cannot be explained and one is said to be the fierce bite that emerges from the peat bogs of Islay.

Both ex bourbon and Oloroso sherry butts have been used to make this special little guy and Ardbegs soon-to-retire distillery manager, Mickey Heads words describe it best: “A new permanent expression in the core range is always momentous for the Distillery, but Wee Beastie is a particularly special dram. As it’s a younger whisky, it means we’re able to get as close to the still as possible. So it’s safe to say this is a ferociously good wee nip!”

So fierce that Ardbeg had to warm all of the enthusiasts of its nature with a Red bottle top for danger...
