Ardbeg Scorch Limited Edition

You would not think it to see it now, but Ardbeg had a difficult time of it for much of the 20th century. The distillery was bought in a joint venture between Hiram Walker and DCL in 1959, both intending to supply their blends. The subsequent years were very successful, but DCL backed out in 1979 (closing many of their other distilleries a few years later), and Hiram Walker then struggled in the 1980s era oversupply when interest is blended Scotch was waning. They closed it down for the majority of the decade. It re-opened briefly in the 1990s before being revived for good by Glenmorangie plc in 1997.

Ardbeg Scorch was the 2021 limited edition from the distillery. Released in May 2021, this would have been the tenth edition to celebrate Ardbeg Day at the world famous Fèis Ìle, however as with the previous year,the festivities were cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The whisky has been matured in the most heavily charred ex-Bourbon casks that the distillery has ever used. 

A cask strength committee bottling was also released the month before.
