Smooth as the sands, yet rugged as the rocks which inspire its existence, Ardbeg Traigh Bhan (pronounced ‘tri-van’) is a deliciously rare 19-year-old, small-batch bottling from Ardbeg, the world’s smokiest, peatiest Islay malt whisky.
It is named after Islay’s Traigh Bhan beach, whose ‘singing’ sands hide jagged rocks. And like that captivating spot, this single malt is full of the unexpected – smooth aromas drawing you in, until Ardbeg’s peaty power breaks the surface.

Blend and Origin
This small-batch single malt is the first aged Ardbeg in two decades released as a permanent expression. Matured for 19 years in American oak and oloroso sherry casks, just one batch will be released each year. Naturally, the whisky’s taste will alter ever so slightly between each batch, upping the intrigue of this ever-changing dram. Non chill-filtered for ultimate mouthfeel, depth and body.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
