Named for the large, almost unnavigable whirlpool to the north of Islay, this limited edition single malt Scotch undergoes a rare purification process which renders its signature malty fresh flavor. Its heady aromas, deep flavors of peat and pepper and a long and powerful finish of coffee, chocolate covered cherries and hot pepper sauce was awarded a Double Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Powerful, muscular, well-textured, and invigorating. Even within the realm of Ardbeg, this one stands out. Quite stunning!"

Product Details

Like the whirlpool for which it’s named, a swirling torrent to the north of Islay that’s almost unnavigable, this limited edition single malt Scotch is not for the fainthearted. Heady, intense and powerful aromas of creosote, waxy dark chocolate, blackcurrants and cherries develop into cayenne pepper, seaweed, smoke and vanilla. Deep, peppery and chewy on the palate, it bursts with meaty, briny and coffee flavors, along with dark fruit and star anise. The finish is long, deep and powerful, with black coffee, chocolate covered cherries and hot pepper sauce. The whisky undergoes a rare purification process which renders its signature malty fresh flavor, and in 2010, it was named "The World's Best Single Malt Whisky" by Whisky Magazine.

About the Producer

Ardbeg Distillery was founded on the south coast of Scotland’s isle of Islay, in Argyll and Bute in 1815 by John McDougall. The distillery changed hands several times over the years. Production halted in 1981, and then resumed on a limited basis until 1997, when The Glenmorangie Company acquired the distillery and resumed full-scale production. Today, the Ardbeg Committee meets and oversees the craftsmanship to assure future quality. The distillery considers its style to be representative of the “ultimate single Islay Scotch.”
