Wee Beastie is the latest permanent expression to join Ardbeg’s Ultimate Range. At just five years old, Wee Beastie is a feisty young creation with a formidable taste.

Intensely smoky, with notes of cracked black pepper, tar and meat, it’s not for the faint hearted.

Producer’s Tasting Notes

Aromas – The first sniff alerts you to a nearby presence… heightened senses are filled with very bright, fresh herbal notes, with creeping hints of vanilla and pear. Rich Turkish coffee mingles with sappy pine resin, with honey-glazed ham lurking in the background.

With water, more herbal top notes like vetiver and fennel captivate and pull you in, while beguiling scents of aniseed, green apple and leather cause you to drop your guard. Out of nowhere, a sharp tang of smoke and a crack of fresh black pepper fire warning shots across the senses.

Palate – A rich, explosive mouthfeel bursts forth with chocolate, creosote and tar. A powerful blast of eucalyptus thrashes about with antiseptic lozenges and aniseed. The raw, smoky intensity gathers pace, before smoked bacon and savoury meats sink into the palate.

Finish – The long, salty mouthcoating finish retreats, with hints of cocoa and fudge slinking slowly away.
