Ardbeg Wee Beastie is the youngest bottling in the ultimate Ardbeg range. Aged only five years, Wee Beastie is extremely untamed with an impressive bite.
Our whiskey experts have set ourselves the goal of creating the harshest and smokiest Ardbeg ever. The result: Ardbeg Wee Beastie is a tongue-tingling, peaty drama. The youngest Ardbeg we've ever had.
On the nose intense aromas of freshly ground pepper, juicy pine resin and acrid smoke. An eruption on the palate with chocolate, creosote and tar, followed by hearty meat notes. They dissolve a salty long mouthfeel and reveal the inner beast of this ultimate Islay Malts.
Matured young and very smoky, this dram is extremely untamed. Former bourbon and oloroso sherry barrels create a bottling that should be enjoyed straight or is a delicious main ingredient in a strongly smoky cocktail.
