Ardbeg 1815

Ardbeg 1815 Bottling Note

A very limited edition from Islay's Ardbeg, released in 2015 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of distillery being founded on the Kildalton. The whisky was distilled in the mid-1970s in bourbon and sherry casks, then moved over to glass containers in 2008 to preserve it for this release. Just 400 bottles were produced - incredibly collectible stuff.

Ardbeg 1815 Reviews

Not your typical Ardbeg, in more ways than one.

Very unique for an Ardbeg. Super sherry forward, with smoke that starts pretty light but gets richer as it breaths for a few minutes. It's clearly Ardbeg, with deep, oily texture and a lot of the rich sweetness, meatiness, and smoke you'd expect, but the sherry notes are so strong it rounds out all the typical spikiness I usually expect from an Ardbeg, leaving notes of toffee, and spices I can't quite put my finger on. the finish is long (not surprising for an Ardbeg) and I get just a bit of raisin in the finish along with a satisfying lingering smoke.

Can't say my wallet was all that happy with me, but I'm glad to have had the chance at this amazing example of what more than 30 years in the barrel does to an Ardbeg. SO damn good.

ive never tasted it but the bottle is beautiful

wait...are people really mixing this with cherry coke??? ive never had it but it seems like the kind of thing to drink neat or with a splash of cool water...

Thank you, Kandy...

Incredible scotch. My only daughter gifted me a bottle...I have no words to describe how much I love her! Her hard work has payed off, I suppose! It does cost a lot, so I’d recommend to save it for a special moment or to add to your collection as a center piece. If you do decide to drink it, I’d recommend to mix it with cherry coke like another man said in his review. 10% scotch and 90% coke will do! I decided to open it during my beautiful daughter’s sweet sixteen!

Great

Had two drams of this fine scotch. One was plain with no added water - 3.5/5. The second I mixed with ice and cherry coke... made a world of difference! 5/5

Exceptional

Was lucky enough to try this at an Edinburgh tasting flight. Ardbeg 1815 with a wee dash of diet Irn-Bru. If I had have known it was£5k a bottle I would have made sure I mixed it with the original recipe Iran-Bru. Shame on me!
