Item Description
A new collection of mythical malts, the Anthology will tell a story of three rare & strange liquids: experimental maturations in which Dr. Bill Lumsden, Head of Distilling & Whisky Creation, crossed classic Ardbeg smoke with sweeter, more delicate notes.

The unique Ardbeg expressions will be released in increasing age from 13 Years old to 15 Years Old, each with its own unique maturation story. The first release being the 13 Years Old is finished in a marriage of sweet Sauternes wine casks and ex- Bourbon casks.

LIQUID PROFILE
ABV: 46%
Color: Amber
Cask: Sweet Sauternes Wine casks and ex-Bourbon casks.
Nose: Very distinctively oily, with touches of extra virgin olive oil, sweet briar wood, aromatic herbs (coriander & sage) and a suggestion of smoked lemon peel.
Taste: A soft, oily, mouthcoating texture leads into a rich, sweet, smoky palate with hints of oak moss, treacle, aniseed lozenges and a lovely, sweet, woody/balsamic flavor. Then followed by smoked apricots and eucalyptus oil.
Finish: Finally comes a lingering, sweet/smoky aftertaste, with a touch of cumin, cardamom and the merest hint of coconut.
About Ardbeg
The Ardbeg distillery has been producing whisky since 1798, and began commercial production in 1815.[3] Like most Scottish distilleries, for most of its history, its whisky was produced for use in blended whisky, rather than as a single malt. By 1886 the distillery produced 300,000 gallons of whisky per year, and employed 60 workers.[3] Production was halted in 1981, but resumed on a limited basis in 1989 and continued at a low level through late 1996, during the period when Ardbeg was owned by Hiram Walker.[citation needed] In 1997 the distillery was bought and reopened by Glenmorangie plc (subsequently taken over by the French company LVMH on 28 December 2004)[4] with production resuming on June 25, 1997 and full production resuming in 1998. The distillery was reopened by Ed Dodson in 1997 and handed over to Stuart Thomson, who managed it from 1997 to 2006. Michael "Mickey" Heads, an Islay native and former manager at Jura who had worked at Ardbeg years earlier, took over on 12 March 2007.
