A limited edition bottling celebrating Ardbeg Day at the 2017 Islay Festival, Kelpie is the distillery’s first whisky with a heart matured in virgin oak from the Black Sea coast. Only a handful of whiskies have ever been matured in Black Sea casks, renowned for their deep flavour influence. When married with ex-bourbon cask matured Ardbeg spirit, the resulting Islay single malt tells of its ties to the Black Sea and the waves of flavour its casks have created.
The whiskt leaves an extraordinary tastes with hint of mouth-watering tarry rope and salty seaweed. A true inspiration from the depths of flavour imparted by the Black Sea casks that import deep flavours.
