This Limited Edition bottling from the Ardbeg Distillery, Ardbeg Drum, a scrumptious jamboree of flavours and the perfectly peaty excuse for a party.
Inspired by Islay’s rich history of carnivals, this whisky is a bottling imbued with the ultimate influence of carnival spirit, rum. In a first for the Distillery, they have taken Ardbeg single malt from ex-Bourbon casks, rested it awhile in ex-rum casks from the Americas, giving us…Ardbeg Drum.
Discover a mass of complex flavours as they parade across the palate. Fragrant pine resin and woodsmoke dance alongside ripe banana and pineapple, before lavender, liquorice and vanilla strut into a long, smoky finish – a downright wondrous paradiddle of aromas.
Ardbeg Drum – let the rumbustious revelry begin!

Nose: Smoked apple and pineapple, ripe banana, fragrant pine resin and subtle woodsmoke. Dry coco powder, cinnamon and ginger spiced dates and ‘floating’ lavender notes.
