Share on Pinterest

Islay distillery Ardbeg has released a limited edition single malt called Ardcore for this year’s Fèis Ìle [Festival of Music and Malt] festival. ‘Ardcore will be released to commemorate Ardbeg Day – which is held on the final Saturday of the Fèis Ìle – which runs from May 27 to June 4, 2022. Ardbeg Day (June 4) will have festivities take place at the distillery, online and at local events worldwide.

‘Ardcore – inspired from the area’s 1970s punk past, when Islay’s main port, Port Ellen, went by the nickname ‘Punk Ellen’ – was created with roasted black malt, bottled at 46% alcohol by volume [92 proof] and is said to contain notes of black heart and spiky ball [actually…anise, charcoal, dark chocolate, lime, peanut brittle, soot and toffee].

Ardbeg ‘Ardcore single malt whisky is being made available for $130 per bottle.
