Ardbeg – Ar10 – Elements of Islay

Thanks to both /u/devoz and /u/distillation for this sample. So we just finished a Lagavulin independent bottled double cask. What can beat that? I am a Lagavulin fanboy, after all. Oh, yeah, I’m also an Ardbeg fanboy. And a huge obvious stereotype whisky drinker. Thus we have Ardbeg – Ar10 – Elements of Islay up next, yet another of the chemistry […]

Ardbeg Drum Committee Release

I complained a while ago that I wasn’t reviewing that many Ardbegs. Oh, and then I started reviewing Ardbegs because I’m a two-faced idiot who can’t see into the future or notice the stuff his whisky friends are buying. But this time I bought the samples. I had friends who were wondering about Ardbeg Drum Committee […]

Ardbeg 15 2000 Chieftain’s

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for pouring me this dram. I don’t review Ardbeg often. Why? Well, they guarantee to bring out one special edition a year, two if you count the committee and non-committee versions. I live in a province that gets it super late (and typically overprices these releases), and the other releases would require me to […]

Ardbeg 23

So we hit the end of our four Ardbeg drams at Ardbeg Day 2018: An Oa, Dark Cove, Kelpie, and then Ardbeg Grooves. We had pulled pork for lunch, the day was nice, and our fellow drinkers were a great group to have a few drams with. Then we’re lead outside into the spacious, cool […]

Ardbeg Grooves

This year I was lucky enough to attend Ardbeg Day. Typically I’m not able, as it’s usually the same day as my wedding anniversary. Thus it’s a little difficult to convince my wife that we should go drink whisky. Don’t get me wrong: She likes a nip of whisky here or there and likes a […]

Ardbeg An Oa

As a lead up to the Ardbeg Day release this year, we were able to try a lineup of past whiskies that have been released in the past few years. Included in these was Ardbeg An Oa, the last addition to the lineup from Ardbeg in quite awhile. But why add something? A lot of whisky […]

Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist 2006

Thanks to /u/nsquare14 for sending me some samples. Really appreciate these, as he sent me some I’ve never reviewed as a thank you for the reviews. You have to really enjoy those moments in your life that are “treats”. What do I mean by “treats”, and am I using innuendo with those quotation marks? Not 100% on […]
