I did manage to stop by Ardbeg this afternoon and taste the brand new release of the 21 year old limited edition. The place was absolutely packed with excited malt fans and tourists making the journey for the big event. The whisky is quite delicate and light on its feet for what Ardbeg has been become known for over the last decade, so fans of the more restrained and ethereal style of whisky will be pleased. These things were selling like hotcakes all day long!
I've got a big story to tell you about tomorrow, but I have to wait until then. It's all typed up, the pictures are ready, and the quotes are in. Now, however, it's time for cold beer and Indian food. We are celebrating some big news with the Laings.
Look for the Ardbeg later this Fall (hopefully by late October).
