Introducing Ardbeg Heavy Vapours, the distinctive limited-edition 2023 Feis Ile release from the acclaimed Ardbeg distillery. This particular bottle is the non "committee release" version, making it an exclusive and sought-after offering.

Distinguished from other Ardbeg expressions, Heavy Vapours is a single malt Scotch whisky distilled without the use of a purifier. The purifier typically acts to balance Ardbeg's iconic blend of intense peatiness with floral fruitiness. In its absence, Heavy Vapours delivers a uniquely intense experience, embracing a potent, raw expression of the distillery's style.

Tasting Notes:

Aroma: Expect smoky sweet aromas, characteristic of the Ardbeg style.

Taste: The palate is a dance of bittersweet flavors. There's coal dust for a deep, earthy character, a pinch of peppermint for a fresh lift, cardamom for a touch of spicy warmth, and dark chocolate to envelop it all in a rich, comforting finish.

This limited-edition release is perfect for both Ardbeg aficionados looking for something different and whisky enthusiasts drawn to more intense, peaty expressions. As always, remember to enjoy this unique dram responsibly.
