A discontinued bottling and much difficult to find, this is one of the few Ardbegs with an age statement. The first bottling of the 17 years old marked the revival of Ardbeg's legacy after the new owners Glenmorangie took over in 1997 but was sadly discontinued thereafter. Gentle peat bringing though a mix of malt and vanillins on the nose. Peat is more present on the palate with a chewy middle and touch of cocoa. Finishes with a hint of liquorice and dry toast and continues for some time. Please note the slight damage on the box. Comes with original insert. Sold in "as is" condition.
