Matured in a slightly higher proportion of Oloroso Sherry casks, this sublime 19-year-old whisky is the epitome of an aged Ardbeg. Part of a highly sought-after and collectible Ardbeg series, Batch 4 is the latest expression. This sublime Traigh Bhan, like the bottles before it, was inspired by Islay’s Traigh Bhan beach (pronounced tri-van).
Ardbeg Traigh Bhan masterfully performs the impossible – balancing the lull and crescendo of its intense flavors. Bottled under a full moon, the tides have turned for this rare spirit as more mentholic, herbal notes rush the senses, with intense smoke left behind in its peaty wake.
An intense wave of wood smoke crashes over the palate, leaving ripples of decadent dark chocolate and ground coffee in its wake. Sweeter notes of lemon curd and peanut brittle cut through the swell to reveal delicate hints of creamy raisin fudge and hazelnut.
The allure of this rare dram continues with suggestions of more medicinal, spicy notes. Menthol, fresh lemongrass, aniseed, clove and white pepper emerge from rich, smoky depths.
