Manufacturer's notes: On Islay, our passion for festivity is the lifeblood of our famous island spirit. And this year, it just so happens that Ardbeg Drum is a perfectly peaty excuse to celebrate. In Ardbeg Drum, Ardbeg Scotch Whiskey from ex-Bourbon casks has been rested in ex-rum casks from the Americas to produce a downright wonderous paradiddle of aromas. Fragrant pine resin, woodsmoke and seaspray dance alongside ripe banana and pineapple. Lavender, liquorice and vanilla sway into rich dark chocolate, before parading into a long smoky finish.
