‘ Traigh Bhan ’(pronounced Tri Van).

The beach of Traigh Bhan is known locally as the ‘Singing Sands’.

For Traigh Bhan Batch 5, careful variations in cask selection have led to a captivating evolution of the flavour profile. Matured in classic Ardbeg ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, this whisky ventures into sweeter, more tropical waters. Notes of fresh green peppers, smoked mango and guava mingle with maple bacon on the nose. A deep smokiness gives way to toasted tonka beans and white pepper, with waves of aniseed, burnt heather and spiced chive. A satisfyingly long finish brings with it notes of warm toffee fudge and smoked butter.

From the Ardbeg Distillery to Port Ellen and beyond, follow the rocky coast and you will discover the heavenly vista of Traigh Bhan, the beautiful beach known locally as the Singing Sands. This captivating place has white soft sands that sing beneath your feet, a hum that ebbs and flows with the winds and the tides. But beguiling as this place is, do not drop your guard. Bathing is ill advised in the seemingly tame crystal waters where jagged, volcanic rocks piece the sands along the shore, and plenty of this you will see on the packaging itself.

Produced in a single batch each year, each annual batch of Traigh Bhan features a unique code on the carton, bottle and foot label.

Ardbeg Traigh Bhan is non chill-filtered and bottled at 46.2% ABV.


Colour: Sparkling sunshine.

Nose: Perfumed aromas of luscious tropical fruit flow on the breeze, while curious notes of herbal incense and smoke follow closely behind. Menthol lozenge and saddle soap laps over charred green pepper, before smoked mango, guava and coconut mingle in an effervescing top note.

Taste: A creamy mouthfeel leads the way into a crashing symphony of herbal, spicy flavours. Smoked maple cured bacon, charcoal, white pepper and clove rush forth amid gentle overtones of the outdoors in wood smoke and sea spray.

Finish: A satisfyingly long finish welcomes more tropical notes, with fragrant heather, warm toffee and smoked butter on the horizon.
