This rare old malt whisky is the supreme expression of Ardbeg. It has been slowly matured in oak barrels for 25 Years and is non-chill-filtered to retain maximum flavour. The Lords of the Isles ruled the Western Isles of Scotland from their ‘council Isle’ on Islay from the 12th to the 15th century.
The Celtic, Norse warlord, Somerled, founder of the Lordship dynasty through his three sons Dugall, Ranald and Angus was thus the progenitor of the two great clans of the MacDonald and MacDougall. The Ardbeg distillery was founded on Islay in 1815 by John MacDougall.
