Ardbeg Twenty Something 22 Year Old / Committee Release
The 2018 edition of the Twenty Something releases, the third bottled exclusively for the Ardbeg Committee, the distillery's fan club.
This 22 year old expression has been matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels, and is comprised of some of the most limited stock in any Scottish distillery warehouse. With the bulldozers lurking at the distillery gate, and little hope for its future, very few casks were being filled and laid down. These bottlings are a testament to the faith of those who persevered with the operation, and are bottled in honour of the Ardbeg Committee who's mandate is to ensure the distillery never experiences such fears for its existence again.
The ex-bourbon casks were distilled in the spring of 1996 in the still that now sits monumentally outside the distillery gates, and they were bottled in July 2018.
