Ardbeg Very Young Bottling Note

The first part in the Young series from Ardbeg, tracking the development of Ardbeg whisky, aged for just a few years, all the way up to the standard Ardbeg at 10 years old. Very interesting indeed, and now extremely rare.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Very peaty and spicy. Notes of cut hay, fresh herbs, smoke, kippers. Hints of the coast, lime juice, coal tar.

Palate: Rich and thick. Very malty, hints of salinity, very phenolic, black pepper, chilli, digestive biscuits. Huge and intense.

Finish: Smoky, spicy, peaty. Tarmac on a hot day. Some caramel sweetness and citrus.

User Reviews of the Ardbeg 1998 (bottled 2004) Very Young


Bought a bottle in 2005 for £24. Had always been a huge fan of the Islay's but got absolutely floored by the outstanding flavour and phenomenal complexity of this young fellow. I developed a deep and profound love for it very quickly and managed to share some with my number one single malt whisky friend who not surprising felt exactly like I did about it. A truly phenomenal whisky.

If only I knew then what I know now..I would have bought everything in sight. £24...

Outstanding and likely never to be matched again, ever.
