The Long Awaited Release of the Wee Beastie is finally here in Malaysia!

IT’S A MONSTER OF A DRAM
Ardbeg Wee Beastie is the latest permanent expression to join the Distillery’s Ultimate Range. At just five years old, Wee Beastie is a feisty young creature with a formidable taste.

SOMETHING BIG AND SMOKY…
Our whisky creators set out to make the rawest, smokiest Ardbeg ever. The result is Ardbeg Wee Beastie and this tongue-tingling, beautifully smoky dram is the youngest Ardbeg we’ve ever made.
On the snout, intense aromas of cracked blacked pepper mingle with sappy pine resin and a sharp tang of smoke. Suddenly, an explosive mouthfeel bursts forth with chocolate, creosote and tar. Savoury meats sink into the palate before the long salty mouthcoating finish slinks away… revealing the inner beast of this Islay icon.
Young and intensely smoky, this is a dram untamed by age. Matured in ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, Wee Beastie is perfect for enjoying neat or as the mouth-watering main ingredient in a powerfully smoky cocktail.

Description

Vital Stats: 47.4% ABV. Non-chill filtered single malt aged 5 years in ex-bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry butts. 750ml $47.

Appearance: Fair blonde.

Nose: Smoked brisket burnt ends with a sweet touch of tangy barbecue sauce is the first thing I notice. Apple skin and apple blossom mix with herbal mint tea. The faintest of faint vanilla bean mixes with a struck match.

Palate: Sweet spun sugar hits the tongue first, then fresh green apple takes over. The smoke is there from the peat, but it is underwhelming. Bland wood and leather fill in the middle. While there is a hint of salinity throughout the dram, there is also a touch of spice like cracked black pepper. Soot stays on the tongue during the aftertaste.
