Ardbeg Feis 2011 Bottling Note

Ardbeg's absolutely amazing Feis Ile bottling, bottled in 2011. This very rare Ardbeg was distilled in 1998 and aged in two Pedro Ximenez butts (making this the closest thing you'll ever get to a finished whisky from Ardbeg!). Genuinely one of the best whiskies we've ever tasted.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Really thick and rich. There’s an incredible amount going on, all of which is underpinned by this meaty, BBQ smoke. There’s some of the Ardbeg citrus, but mostly you’re greeted with aromas of tar, black treacle, smoked prune juice and sweet sherry.

Palate: An explosion floods over the palate, and it gives up intense notes of prunes, tangy plums, warm pastries and thick smoke. Hints of burnt sugar too, with just a little citric tanginess late palate.

Finish: Very long, and big on sherry. It has a perfect balance of wood smoke and sweet, over-ripe grapes, with a tinge of drying oak on the tail.

Overall: Absolutely staggering. One of the best Ardbegs we’ve ever tasted, and by proxy, one of the best whiskies we’ve ever had!

Amazing

I was in Islay the week after the festival and managed to score a bottle of this, probably the best whisky I've ever tasted. The chaps are spot on.

fantastic

Caution, this is not a typical Ardbeg. It is very deep, intense, fantastic! One of the best whiskies I´ve ever tasted.

Do not waste your money on this one.

I am a diehard ardbeg fan and have a lot of experience with a lot of ardbegs, and almost every ardbeg I've tasted I've loved. This one, is an absolute failure. There is a bitter sulfury taste that overshadows any virtues hidden beneath. The chaps at Master of Malt do great work and I appreciate it greatly. Usually they are right on, but to call this great whisky, and give it the endorsement they have, really makes them look bad. Virtually every other ardbeg you can choose is a winner. This one is not. Use this money, and get an ardbeg from the 70's.
