Special 2018 Committee-Only Edition
Cask Type: Red Wine
Bottler: Ardbeg, Committee Release
Release Date: March 2018
This much anticipated 2018 Ardbeg Grooves Committee Release is inspired by the alternative lifestyle and unorthodox spirit of a previous generation recalling the 1960’s ‘Summer of Love’, or as Ardbeg suitably phrase it – “Peat and Love”.
For this year’s vatting, Dr Bill Lumsden (Ardbeg’s Director of Distilling) has used re-toasted red wine casks to mature a portion of the whisky. While still sticky with the residue of the wine, these casks were intensely charred to produce heavy grooves into the surface of the wood, allowing for more intense spirit to wood interaction similar to the majestic Ardbeg Alligator release of 2011.
Only made available in very limited quantities to committee member whilst we await the general 46% alc bottle that will be released globally during Ardbeg Day celebrations on the 2nd of June 2018.
