Ardbeg Twenty One, as the story goes, is a 21-year-old bottling which was distilled back in the mid-1990s. It is said a then-young Mickey Heads, now distillery manager, “set aside a small number of casks for Ardbeg’s future – including some containing whisky distilled during those perilous days when the Distillery’s future was still uncertain.” “Ardbeg Twenty One is a shining example of Ardbeg’s enduring spirit,” said Heads in a prepared statement.

Mickey Heads - Distillery Manager & Chairman of the Ardbeg Committee. The 20th manager to take the reins at Ardbeg and genuine Ileach. Well-deserved winner of Icons of Whisky Global Distillery Manager of the Year 2014.

Sparkling pale gold color. On the nose, A beautiful, sumptuous but curious mix of tarry smoke, Ardbeg ice cream and black pepper. Some green leafy herbal top notes are then discovered, like Fennel or Basil. A splash of water releases sweet toffee, popcorn and buttery oak, but always anchored by Ardbeg’s sooty, tarry smoke. An intense, peppery, fizzy mouthfeel gives way to rich flavours of liquorice/aniseed, marzipan, toasted rye bread, charcoal and peppermint. The harmonious, integrated flavour lingers, with more creamy vanilla, sweet notes, and a dash of spice. Long and lingering on the finish, but quite gentle, almost soothing, with more coal tar, aniseed and smoky butter.
