This youthful Ardbeg, first released in 2004, is now released just over one year on, as we follow the path to Ardbeg 10 years old. 'Still Young' is a wonderfully robust Ardbeg, still peaty and gristy but ageing well.
The path to maturity 1998 - 2008
Since the distillery re-opened in 1997, many enthusiasts of Ardbeg have been keen to sample our work in progress - none more so than the worldwide aficionados of the Ardbeg Committee, formed to 'ensure that the doors of Ardbeg distillery never close again'. It was to them that we released a limited bottling of Very Young Ardbeg to elcit their comments.
'Still Young' Ardbeg, bottled in 2006, is another step along this peaty road and in 2007, a final limited release 'Almost There' will complete the journey to full maturity.
