Product DescriptionArdbeg Drum 104 Proof 750ml
In an Islay time gone by - on the last day of the Feis Ile Festival - locals would transform everything from harversters to hatchbacks into magnificent floats. If it had wheels, they decorated it. Adorned with brilliant flowers and fabrics, these vibtrant moblie gardens were a sight to behold. Starting at the pier in Port Ellen, the procession would roll by the crowds at Ardbeg, before honking and tooting its way to be judged. This was a typically Islay cavalcade of color. And this year, it just so happens that Ardbeg Drum is a perfectly peaty excuse to celebrate.
In Ardbeg Drum, Ardbeg Scotch whisky from ex-Bourbon casks has been rested in ex-rum casks from the Americas to produce a downright wondrous paradiddle of aromas. Fragrant pine resin, woodsmoke and seaspray dance alongside ripe banana and pineapple. Lavender, liquorice and vanilla sway into rich dark chocolate, before parading into a long, smoky finish.
