Product Description

Ardbeg’s newest permanent core range expression roars to life in 2020. A Monster of a Dram, Wee Beastie is the perfect introduction to the Ardbeg portfolio. Matured for just 5 years, making it the untamed ‘enfant terrible’ of the whisky world. Ardbeg prides itself on being The Ultimate Islay Malt Whisky. Established in 1815, Ardbeg is revered by connoisseurs around the world as the peatiest, smokiest and most complex of all the Islay malts. Despite its smokiness, Ardbeg is renowned for its delicious sweetness, a phenomenon that has affectionately become known as ‘the peaty paradox’.

    Really overpowering smokiness. I like hints or even a little more than a hint of smoke, but this is just way too much for my palate.

    The Wee Beastie is a very pleasant drink, as long as you like smokey flavor, which it has in abundance. It is much more flavorful than the Ardbeg 10 year, and something i will buy again.

    A nice, young, savory Islay Scotch... Lots of pepper, tar, leather, and light chocolate on the body to compliment a lemon custard / iodine nose. Long oaky BBQ peat finish. Bottled at the right ABV (47.4%). Glad I bought it.

FAQs

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
