Details
If you usually hold whisky back to enjoy in the colder months, then you'll be intrigued to try this smoke-packed limited-edition single malt that's been specially created with the barbecue season in mind.
Matured in charred casks, Ardbeg BizarreBQ Limited Edition – the result of a unique collaboration between Ardbeg's experimental Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden, and grilling guru Christian Stevenson (AKA DJ BBQ) – captures the tangy, sweet and savoury essence of a smoky barbecue and packs a meaty, peaty punch.

TASTING NOTES:
A feast of aromas

Appearance

Glowing charcoal embers

Aroma

The nose brings puffs of charcoal and soot, which mingle with smoky wood, aromatic herbs and spices. From there, treacle toffee, hickory-smoked ham and cinnamon-dusted espresso rise up.

Taste

On the palate, the mouthfeel is alive with spice. Deep, warming smoke follows close behind, with notes of flame-grilled steak, chilli oil, cured leather and clove, leading to ginger and aniseed with an aromatic wood-smoke edge. The finish is massive, with a hot, lingering aftertaste introducing grilled artichokes, black olives and a sooty note that slowly simmers away.

BLEND & ORIGIN ARDBEG

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Ardbeg BizarreBQ Limited Edition

Fuelled by a shared obsession for smoke and its rich flavour possibilities, this limited-edition single malt whisky captures and complements the flavours of barbecue.
 

It's inspired by Ardbeg’s ongoing collaboration with DJ BBQ, which first launched in 2020.
 

Using an experimental cask toasting process, the recipe for Ardbeg BizarreBQ is made up of double-charred oak casks, Pedro Ximénez sherry casks and the distillery’s unique barbecue casks that have been extra-charred on an old-fashioned brazier.
 

This cask combination ignites a feast of aromas in hickory-smoked ham, grilled artichokes, flamed steak and cinnamon-dusted espresso.
