New - Limited Edition Ardbeg Auriverdes


​Already sold out in the UK - our shipment of the Limited Edition Ardbeg Auriverdes has just arrived today at our main store!  This 2014 Limited Edition was released on May 31, 2014 - it has been matured in American oak casks with specially toasted cask lids that were tailor-made for this whisky.  David Michiels says: "I love the sweetness! It's a great scotch for summer."

From Dr. Bill Lumsden, Director of Distillation and Whisky Creation: "...When creating Auriverdes I had a distinct flavour profile in mind that I watned to achieve, so I specifically created the heart of the recipe to bring that to life. It is an expression of Ardbeg which has exceeded all my expectations - it has the trademark Ardbeg undertones with a distinct new taste experience. Ardbeg Auriverdes has an explosive mouthfeel which gives way to complex flavours of coffee grounds, liquorice, maple smoked ham, malty/biscuit notes, white pepper and a good sweet/salty balance."

At $132.99, This Limited Edition will not last - come to our main store and pick up a bottle today!
