Ardbeg Galileo

Peat lovers, today I’ll introduce to you the Ardbeg Galileo… You know? This famous whisky that we sent into space to study the impact of gravity on its maturation. The whisky you’ll drink here isn’t the one they sent in space eh, this is just the same whisky that was bottled to celebrate this unusual event. Aged in ex-bourbon casks (first filling) and Marsala, it has an alcohol level of 49%. So, will this whisky take us to infinity and beyond?

Ardbeg An Oa

Ardbeg An Oa whisky

An Oa whisky by Ardbeg takes its name from a rocky area in the southwest of Islay. He joined, in 2017, the core range of Ardbeg, a core range that didn’t change for nearly 10 years.

The recipe of this whisky is based on a blend of seven different casks: highly carbonized virgin oak barrels, Pedro Ximénez casks and first fill bourbon casks for the most important part of this blend. These were married in a large french oak vat.
