Last year we were at the Ardbeg Distillery, and had a tour around. Back on Islay we found our selfs liking another tour around a little tasting. Sadly we are going from Islay on Ardbog day and could not enjoy the festivities there. In the days before we were told there would be 30 bottles for sale, one per person. But then you have to que early. We managed to do that and get a bottle of Ardbog so we could take it home with us... :-)
We had a walk around and take some new pictures of the distillery and surroundings, and had a great tasting of the following expressions:
Ardbeg - 10
Ardbeg - Blasda
Ardbeg - Uigeadail
Ardbeg - Alligator
Ardbeg - Corryvreckan
Thomas all ready tasted these before, I only did the 10 and Blasda. I was pleasantly surprised I can tell you that, and can imagine why he loves this brand so much... yumm! This journey has given me a lot of new experiences and not so bad at all so far! :-) The journey continues...
This is really a beautiful distillery on a beautiful location. If you can make it there, and have a bite to eat in the great cafe. Here some new pictures of that day, and for now a very nice Ardbog day to all!!
