Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist 1990 2006 Bottling
The phonetic pronunciation of Airigh Nam Beist which in the Gaelic language literally means 'shelter, or pasture of the animals'. It is also the name given to the small hill loch that forms the fulcrum between Loch Uigeadail and Charlie's Dam at Ardbeg Distillery.
The small hill loch at Airigh Nam Beist has a balancing role in delivering the peat-laden waters of Uigedail to the distillery. This perfectly sums up the balance and complexity in all Ardbeg, where the peatiness is tamed by the sweet alchemy of the Ardbeg distillation process.
Entirely drawn from very rare whisky stocks that were distilled and laid down in 1990 and aged in oak casks, Airigh Nam Beist is a wonderfully creamy, smoky malt, suffused in woodsmoke with notes of fennel and pine nuts, topped with tingling limes. This rare malt is a 'wee beastie' of a dram... waiting to be released.
Bottled in the year 2006.
