Ardbeg 23 Year Old 1991 Bottling Note

Hold on to your hats, folks, because we've gone and bottling some 23 year old Ardbeg! That's right, our Single Cask Series grows larger with the addition of a 23 year old single malt Scotch whisky, which was distilled in February 1991 by the legendary Islay distillery, set aside to mature in a bourbon cask and eventually bottled in January 2015 with an outturn of 216 bottles.

Serge from WhiskyFun scored it 92 Points, noting on the palate that it's "almost on par with the best of the 1970s" and "I don’t think you could do better."

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Citrus, grapefruit perhaps, and papaya with honey, Belgian nougat pieces and measured charcoal sitting just beneath with lavender toffee blondies.

Palate: More prominent peat, still quite sooty but there's plenty of fruit in there too after a couple of sips - mouthwatering smoky starfruit and some Buttercup syrup.

Finish: Flapjacks, the return of those blondies, and the peat goes on and on of course, just as you'd hope.

Overall: A simply tremendous whisky. A couple of drops of water help open its fruitier side, but this one's a pleasure however you choose to drink it.

Ardbeg 23 Year Old 1991 - Single Cask (Master of Malt) Reviews

@ The Chaps at Master of Malt

Yup - Springbank released their 21 yr Ardbeg for this year at a grand total of £150. +£200 more for 2 extra years?

@ The Chaps at Master of Malt

Point taken - but Cadenheads released their 20 yr old Ardbeg single cask last year at about half the price above, and I'd be shocked if the 21 yr Ardbeg single cask this year is much more than last year's price - that is to say, less than £200.

@love ardbeg but @ this price!!!!!

Well aged single cask Ardbeg is indeed expensive deliciousness these days, both for bottlers and consumers. All of our single cask prices are based on the cost of the liquid and demand is now huge (as the distillery was closed from 1981-89 there’s hardly any stock older than this, of course). The link below will allow you to compare the price of this release to other recently released Ardbeg single casks over twenty years old: click here - The Chaps at Master of Malt

Worth trying

Out of my price range right now, but I tried a dram of this at a friend's house and all I can say is wow. This is why the indie bottlings are so much better than the distillery releases - you can't make something like this on mass. If there is still any of this around at Christmas I'll be buying a bottle.
