ARDBEG TRAIGH BHAN - FROM THE SINGING SANDS OF ISLAY
For the third release in this 19 Years Old series, slight changes to cask selection mean this bottling has evolved into a spicier dram. An impossibly balanced flavor profile gives rise to delicate notes of zesty lime and walnuts alongside bolder flavors of cayenne pepper and aniseed.
The Singing Sands is the local name for Islay’s beautiful Traigh Bhan beach. For this captivating place has white soft sands that sing beneath your feet, a hum that ebbs and flows with Islay’s winds and tides.
This rare, small-batch 19 Year Old Ardbeg reveals captivating notes of gentle WOOD SMOKE, with gusts of FRESH SEA SPRAY and EUCALYPTUS on the nose. An oily mouthful leads into RICH FUDGE, before SMOKY PEAT and ANISEED crash down on the palate. Savory and smoke collide in a sharp, intense and satisfying long finish.
