Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist 16 Year Old 1990 whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist 16 Year Old 1990 whiskey, instead of whisky.

Airigh Nam Beist Bottling Note

This 16 year old was matured in ex-bourbon casks. The rather ominous 'Airigh Nam Beist' derives from the Scotch Gaelic for 'Shelter of the Beast'. Ardbeg describe this as "Ardbeg Icecream" - we couldn't agree more.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Weighty and pungent. Big, dark peat notes and creosote. Almost like a burning tire, extinguished with powerful sea spray.

Palate: Full, but, surprisingly, unlike the nose. Full of cereal notes and dry wood with a leafy green quality. Sweet, dark almonds and walnuts and a thick cream, all stitched together with heavy smoke.

Finish: Powerful smoke creeps back in, creamy.

User Reviews of the Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist 16 Year Old 1990

Yes

I've got a lot of Whiskies, and work for an opposition company to Ardbeg aka Moet & Hennessy, however I find it very hard to go past this Whisky as being one of my absolute favourites. I have 2 btls just sitting and waiting. I don't plan to sell, but to drink at a time when they're the only left in the world... with a devious and thankful grin!

The best Islay I've tasted. Wish I had another on my shelf. Who's running Ardbeg these days? Alligator?, Galileo???

Smooth Smoke

I found this similar to the 10yo but much smoother, gentler peat smoke and creamier. A Islay relaxation malt indeed, I Love it. Can be hard to find these days, buy whenever you can find it.

Pungent

This is the most pungent 'standard' strength Ardbeg. It's full bodied, peaty, tarry, tobaccoey but not overly ethanolic. If you want big weight without the high alcohol content, this is your dram!

Bourbon and smoke

A nice dram, but a bit strong on the Bourbon for my liking. It does have a rich peatiness however which lets you know that you are drinking a mature Ardbeg. Strong nose of tobacco pouch. Tastes of bourbon and finishes with long satisfying peat.

The best bottle of liquid we've ever had the pleasure of tasting. Strong, heavy peat, with very little heat and a very fragren nose...it's stunning and the next bottle will be hidden away, to be saved for a very special occasion.
