Robbie's Drams Whisky Merchants is an official Ardbeg Embassy.
A brand new release joining the already excellent core range, matured in ex - Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry Casks.
Ardbeg Wee Beastie has been matured for just 5 years,making it the untamed ‘enfant terrible’ of the whisky world.Where as most single malts seek the smoothness and balance of older age,we know that more time in cask tends to subdue the smokiness that so many whisky fans love.
Colour: Bright Auric
Nose: Very fresh, herbal, with hints of vanilla, pear, freshly cracked black pepper, honey-glazed ham. Rich Turkish coffee, sappy pine resin. With water, more herbal notes like vetiver and fennel, along with aniseed, green apple and leather
Taste: A rich, explosive mouthfeel with lots of chocolate, tar, creosote and smoked bacon, followed by a burst of antiseptic lozenges, eucalyptus and more aniseed.
Finish: A long salty and mouth coating finish with hints of cocoa, fudge and savoury meats
