Ardbeg Traigh Bhan is a sublime 19 year old whisky and the Distillery's latest small batch release. Inspired by Islay's Traigh Bhan beach (known locally as the Singing Sands), this rare aged spirit is an enchanting reflection of the place to which it owes its name. In a whisky where calm meets storm, experience seductively smooth beginnings, before powerful notes emerge in an intense crescendo. On the nose, discover elegant notes of herbal pine resin, smoky pineapple, and dark chilli chocolate. On the taste, experience a peaty power that plunges your palate into smoky depths. Like the rocks that break the surface at Traigh Bhan, the true nature of this Ardbeg emerges. Waves of toasted oak and paprika guide your palate towards a gentle finish that resonates long beyond the glass.
Named for Islay's Traigh Bhan beach, where the "Singing Sands" hide jagged rocks beneath, this single malt is by turns velvety and rugged. Each sip opens with soft smoke and mellow orchard fruit, but finishes drying and intensely peated, with a flicker of cayenne heat. Introduced in September 2019, this is the first permanent aged whiskey expression added to the Ardbeg portfolio in 20 years and will be available annually in small batches.
