Ardbeg Grooves 18yo 2000 Ex-Wine Casks Feis Ile 2018 46% 700ml information

The Ardbeg Grooves 18yo is a limited edition Islay single malt released to celebrate Ardbeg Day 2018 during the Islay Festival of Music & Malt. This exceptional whisky is a tribute to the Island's 1960s spirit, embodying the ideals of "peat & love." Matured in heavily charred ex-wine casks that produce deep grooves in the wood, Ardbeg Grooves is designed to allow more interaction between the spirit and the wood, creating a richer and more complex flavor profile. Crafted at the renowned Ardbeg Distillery on the Isle of Islay, this 18-year-old whisky offers an aromatic bouquet with notes of smoked spices, distant bonfires, vanilla popcorn, and smoked pear. As you delve deeper, you'll find hints of smoked paprika, sea spray, leather, chilli-seasoned meats, lavender, and herbs. On the palate, it reveals a taste of red fruits, dry peat, and sweet flavors, while the finish is medium length with chalky, mineral notes and a drying end. With an ABV of 46% and presented in a 700ml bottle, Ardbeg Grooves is a mellow, wine-cask matured Islay single malt that is sure to delight whisky enthusiasts. This release is not only a testament to Ardbeg's commitment to innovation and creativity but also to their social responsibility, as all proceeds from the sale of this bottle, including the buyer's commission, will go to the Highlands & Islands NHS in support of the fight against the COVID-19 virus. Ardbeg Grooves 18yo is a rare gem, with only 274 bottles available, making it a highly sought-after collector's item. Whether you’re a dedicated Ardbeg fan or a lover of fine single malts, this whisky is a must-try for its unique flavor and storied heritage.

We have used Spirit Radar since the very beginning. Both in our business and for private use. It is a fantastic tool to keep you updated in the market. It can be very time consuming to find an exact bottle somewhere in the world, but with Spirit Radar, you can get that information within seconds. We have also used it when we need to keep track of our bottles and see what our customers wants. Besides that, its an interesting platform, when you want to explore the rum world, or search for bottles that could be really hard to find in the normal stores. It is very easy and intuitive to use.
