Ardbeg Drum

Drum roll, please! It's this year's limited edition Ardbeg release for Ardbeg Day, Ardbeg Drum! Released at Fèis Ìle and around the world, the single malt brings together the best of both Islay and the Caribbean, as it was matured in bourbon casks and then treated to a finish in casks that previously held rum. The final result is a delicious, smoky and fruity party, truly capturing the carnival spirit.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Bonfire wood smoke intertwines with earthy pine, as sweeter tropical aromas of ripe banana, banana bread and pineapple come to the fore. Some richer notes of dark chocolate and candied ginger add depth.

Palate Loads of spices, with pepper, clove, cinnamon and more ginger surrounded by swirls of earthy smoke, with sweeter notes of liquorice, even more dark chocolate and vanilla pod.

Finish Roasted, slightly burnt coffee beans, and sweet cinnamon and cocoa.

Reviews for Ardbeg Drum
Lovely smoky dram

Nice, but....
Tried a dram last week. Powerful with lots of complexity, but I can't bring myself to splash out that kind of money for a bottle, other than for collector's purposes. It just wasn't a home run. Buy a Uigeadail and console yourself with the money you saved. Cheers from Canada!

Honest Ardbeg Fan
Dear Prof.Lunsden, when you do a limited released, make sure it's better than your solid core range esp. Uigeadall & Corryvrek especially when it's priced twice as much. I am disappointed with your Drum.

Very unArdbeg like. When my missus started loving it, I know it's a crowd pleaser. Strange but true.

Just a novelty ... The romance of the Feis Ile.
I don't see what's the fuss all about. Only novelty it's a limited Feis Ile released. Don't get me wrong, I am a big Islay fan and Ardbeg is my religion. This is a far cry from their core range Uige and Corryvrek. Ardbeg is synonymous with power and it's a masculine whisky, not for the faint hearted. This is pretty lame off a decent weak Islay with some fruity notes. Only for collector keeping it as a trophy for bragging right. Every year the Feis Ile offering is on the decline. Hope to see an improvement next year. Save your hard earn dosh.

A celebratory Dram
Had this together with the Committee release during the Feis Ile festival. The extra abv cask strength didn't work on this dram, actually u prefered this limited version. Bursting with flavours, ripe tropical fruits and the peat smoke came across like roasting a porcine with campfire. Very refine for an Ardbeg and the almagam of flavours was very persistent to the finish. This dram will make you a very happy man.

Great scotch with abundance of taste!
I love it! The best sweet smoky dram I’ve had in a long time. Full of character and taste! Don’t listen to the stuffed shirts. Buy it, enjoy it, and stand up for your own review. Neat or rocks, it performs!

I wont pay 110€ for a underaged nas.
Even if they paint the whole bottle in raibow colours.

Nice, but not worth the price.
Tried some yesterday. I like Ardbeg, so I liked it, but I could barely detect any influence from the rum cask, and couldn’t distinguish it from a standard release.
