Ardbeg Airigh Nam Biest (2007 bottling)

Ardbeg Airigh Nam Biest Thanks to my good friend Yoav (@yoavgel) from Whisky Gospel for the sample of this 2007 bottling of Ardbeg Airigh Nam Biest.

This really is a Beast of a dram with that lovely Earthy smoky peatiness that you expect with Arbbeg and that lemony undertone that comes from the good ones.

Although the 2007 bottling seems to be gone everywhere The Whisky Exchange still have some 2008 bottling if you fancy giving it a try.


There is a hint of earthy peat smoke with heather and moss and vegetation but there is more yeasty undercooked doughy bread like notes in there also along with oodles of crushed lemongrass with a twist of lemon peel oil

Citrus peel oil and waxy mouthfeel with earthy dusty vegetables and uncooked scones and crushed lemongrass

Lemony and doughy
