Ardbeg Kelpie Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) 46% ABV

$249.00

“Kelpie” refers to a legendary sea-horse that lived in the Gulf of Corryvreckan, according to the poem by Charles Mackay, hence the Ardbeg Day launch has a maritime theme. The Melbourne event is being held at the Aquarium. As for the whisky? This is the first Ardbeg to be matured in virgin Black Sea oak which is said to impart “incredibly deep flavours”. The wood which is grown and seasoned in the Adyghe Republic in Russia was sourced by Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling. In creating the Kelpie expression, he married the whisky from the virgin Black Oak barrels with traditional Ardbeg aged in ex-Bourbon barrels. The flavour profile is said to include “…oily peat, dark chocolate and smoked fish / herbal notes, hickory wood and seaweed (kelp)”.
