    Second chance after a tasting last year: it doesn't get any better. Absolutely open-minded about young bottled whiskys, this is an Ardbeg for me that I don't necessarily need. You can leave the barrels lying around for a few more years and then burn them up in the TEN.

      Smoked pear pieces, applesauce, cloves and pepper. Green twigs, cold coffee. Warm corrugated iron roof. Clear youth to be seen. Quite rabid, slightly restless and jostling.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Dry and strong start. Phenolic smoke, hot tar, fresh clippings. Right at the start with a bitter herbal mixture, with young, green twigs, tree sap, smoked apple and pear pieces.

      If you create the exit of the TEN from this set of 3, the 5yo leaves the field pretty quickly. Sure, there is smoke, but that's a smoky note that puts you on your pants and then only plays pocket billiards.

    The set is brilliant. Ardbeg did not mess with the design and the good content.
    Yesterday I had the nice glass green 200 ml. Opened an oa bottle wow because I think they have chosen very good barrels. Really great so far, my best An Oa. And then you can change the bottle design by pulling off the label on the front and another adventure picture is hidden underneath.
    Really something completely different. Find a must for whisky lovers to purchase for under € 50.

    The Ardbeg Wee Beastie is the latest addition to the range.
    Good value 5 year old Islay. Untamed smoke, tar, pepper and dark chocolate.
