Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5yo Bottling Note

Ardbeg's Wee Beastie is a youthful single malt drawn from a combination of ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, bottled up at five years of age. Peaty notes sit at the fore for this one, with oak somewhat taking a back seat, since... Well, y'know, it didn't stay inside those casks for too long. However, don't mistake that for meaning Wee Beastie is an uncomplex expression. It still packs a satisfying flavour profile that should impress many of the Ardbeg aficionados out there.

*Applies to valid purchases of 70cl Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Year Old on Master of Malt only. Offer valid from 17 Jan 2022 until 31 Jan 2022 or while limited promotional stock lasts. Not applicable in conjunction with any other offer.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: There’s sea spray, rock pools, smoked malt and damp bonfire wood initially which waves of sweet and slightly vegetal smoke powers through. Hints of brown sugar, pear drops, a little vanilla and cooked apple add sweetness among notes of spare ribs, lemon sherbet, black pepper and wood shavings. I love this nose, it’s smoky and musty and like standing by a seaside bonfire.

Palate: The palate is very pleasantly sweet and salty. Citrus oils and orchard fruits are present along with an unmistakable dark berry tartness which is joined by plenty of damp peat and dry wood smoke. Adding depth there’s pepper steak, creosote and then some touches of clove and liquorice. In the back-end, there’s a juicy sweetness from lychee and peaches as well as just a touch of salted caramel.

Finish: The finish is exceptionally long and oily. It’s a bit like sucking on a lemon sherbet and taking a great big whiff of some freshly cut peat, to be honest. While standing on a beach. Lovely.

Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 Year Old Reviews

One star - young and just bad

One Star - young and just terrible whisky. I’m guessing the rating is so high as the real reviews are being censored.

This is for Firewalkers and Branding Ironed

Feels like what you'd drink before an amputation or going under enemy fire.

smoky bacon

this is excellent, for the price and age, it makes me really want to explore other young peated malts, and now I have my eye on the 8yr committee release 👀

All I taste is smoke, it’s good to try so you know what five additional years in a cask are for.

Magickally Delicious!

This expression from Ardbeg is one of my favourites! Pairing this one with spicy food or dark chocolate is just magick!

Good for 5 yr old

First time for wee beastie, I am a bowmore no.1 man. But wow, this is a poor man's lagavulin 16. I would buy again.

Yuk then wow!

Fab..took two weeks to get used to it! Initially thought it undrinkable but perseverance was the key.. now I love it! Very fine whisky...

Not the best ardbeg but still enjoyable

As a lover of 10 I was eager to get my hands on this and now I can say It doesn't come near the refined taste of 10. The nose is overwhelming.... Like somebody pushed your head in a bag full of meat, chocolate and coal. It's a lot to take but when it gets air it softens and is more balanced. Then it's very enjoyable to drink and the nose is softer. Not the best Ardbeg but still good. For a young whisky it's well balanced and great buy.

Its just not right for me

Im pretty new to whisky and love peated whisky.
i have tried quite a few now and enjoyed ardbeg 10, uigeadail and An Oa so thought i would give this a go.
I hit a brick wall on this one i can quite push through, domonent on the nose and it transfers to the pallett is the smell and taste of melting car tyre rubber . I put the bottle away for a while to see if it tempered down but it did not, Ill maybe have to play with water to see if this help or dash something else in with it.
Its not for me but im a big fan of the other Ardbeg's i've tried, it a shame this is not in the same class

Absolute banger of a dram

I got this as I had already tried the 10yo and uigeadail. Absolutely loved it. Definitely my favourite out of the three. Very similar to Lagavulin 16 (my top pick) which if you don't want to pay out for it, the wee beastie would be best next choice!
