The Ardbeg Arrrrrrrdbeg 2021 Committee Release was yet another iconic release for the Ardbeg committee members.
After 13 years at the helm, Mickey Heads – Distillery Manager and Committee Chairman is departing. It’s true, the captain of the good ship Ardbeg is retiring. Mickey’s leaving has been hard to fathom for all of the crew, but to commemorate the skipper and his service, Ardbeg have created an extra-special bottle of Ardgrog–a treasure fit for even the saltiest of sea dogs.Wholly matured in ex-rye casks, timber smoked banana and pear drift into vanilla and rye on the nose. A spicy mouthfeel hoists up and ignites a blunderbuss of fruity flavours. An armada of aniseed is tailed by smoked toffee and a distant hint of sourdough biscuits. The long finish lingers, with gentle smoke listing on the palate.
Ardbeg – Arrrrrrrdbeg has been matured in Ex-Rye casks.
