Product Description

The secong batch of Ardbeg's 19 Year Old whisky, Traigh Bhan has arrived

Produced in a single batch each year, each annual batch of Traigh Bhan will feature a unique code on the carton, bottle and foot label.

The Singing Sands is the local name for Islay’s beautiful Traigh Bhan beach. For this captivating place has white soft sands that sing beneath your feet, a hum that ebbs and flows with Islay’s winds and tides.

This rare, small batch 19 Year Old Ardbeg reveals captivating notes of gentle, wood smoke, with gusts of fresh sea spray and eucalyptus on the nose. An oily mouthfeel leads into rich fudge, before smoky peat and aniseed crash down on the palate. Savoury and smoke collage in a sharp, intense and satisfyingly long finish.

Official Tasting Notes

Aroma - On the nose, faint ripples of sweet wood smoke and tart crème fraîche flow gently into bold notes of savoury fennel, celeriac and roasted tea leaves. Plunge further and discover alluring aromas of charcoal and lightly burnt toast. A splash of water releases a gust of fresh sea spray, followed by eucalyptus oil and pine. Finally, this irresistible nose ends with an unmistakable top note of saddle soap and leather.

Taste - An intensely salty mouthfeel shifts like the tides into soothing medicinal notes, followed by salted peanut brittle, smoked pineapple and lime juice. Waves of aniseed lap over the palate, before rich fudge, birch tar and peat smoke crash down wildly. This is a dram that coaxes you in, and all assumptions are best left behind. Simply let this alluring spirit surprise and delight.

Finish - Savoury and smoky notes collide in a sharp, intense, yet satisfyingly long finish
