Ardbeg, 18 Year Old Cadenhead’s, (distilled 1974)

RRP £8,600 Est

This whisky was bottled for the 150th anniversary of Cadenhead’s, a famous independent bottler based in Campbeltown. Distilled in 1974, it was bottled in 1991. With sweet smoke and tinned sardines in brine, it is classic Ardbeg. Minerally and metallic, with iodine and seaweed all in the mix. Smoke flavours persist throughout as if from a spent peat fire. There are also savoury flavours under the maritime notes, including lava bread and sage.
