Ardbeg 17 Years is a single malt Scotch whisky produced by the Ardbeg Distillery located on the Scottish island of Islay. The whisky is matured in ex-bourbon casks for 17 years, which results in a complex and well-balanced flavour profile. On the nose, the Ardbeg 17 Years offers a rich aroma of smoke, peat, and sea salt, with hints of vanilla and citrus. The palate is full-bodied and oily, with flavours of roasted nuts, dark chocolate, and a subtle sweetness from the bourbon casks. The finish is long and smoky, with a hint of spiciness. The Ardbeg 17 Years has won several awards, including the World Whiskies Awards' Best Islay Single Malt in 2020.

About the distillery

Distillery

Ardbeg

Ardbeg distillery is located on the southern coast of the Isle of Islay, Scotland. It was founded in 1815 and has been producing some of the world's most highly regarded Islay single malt whiskies ever since. Ardbeg uses traditional malted barley, Scottish water, and peat to produce its signature smoky and peaty flavors. The distillery uses malted barley that is heavily peated to around 55 parts per million (ppm) phenols, which gives its whiskies a distinct and powerful flavor. Interesting fact: In 2011, Ardbeg sent vials of its whisky to the International Space Station to study the effects of microgravity
