Feis Ile 2020 didn't happen so Ardbeg is already gazing toward 2021 with the Committee Release of its Feis whisky. After sheep come dragons... 

Matured in ex-Bourbon casks charred by the fiery exhale of DUnnage Warehouse 3's - definitely real and totally not made-up - FLAVOUR BREATHING DRAGON. Intense aromas of soot and smoke lie in wait, while grilled fare and black liquorice mingle with bold notes of antiseptic lozenge. This truly is a dram of fantastical proportions

Ardbeg Scorch back label
For many moons, Islay folk have told tales of heroes and dragons. Yet none match the tail of Ardbeg's flavour breathing dragon. Dwelling in Dunnage Warehouse 3, scorching staves and burning barrels, they say Ardbeg Scorch is the mouthwatering product of its fiery temperament...

Matured in charred ex-Bourbon casks, fragrant patchouli interlaces with bold notes of quenched steel and saddle soap. Billowy clouds of sweet smoke and charred oak permeate the palate, as briar wood, sage and pine wisp their way to the fore. So puff up your chest and breathe out your fiery spirit.
