Smokjito

A twist on the Cuban classic with Ardbeg Ten Year Old whisky, the Smokjito is for those who love peaty notes in their drink. Set in the wilderness of the Isle of Islay in western Scotland, the Ardbeg distillery produces one of the best single malts in the world. Ten year-old Ardbeg whisky develops peaty notes as well as a hint of liquorice with age. In the Smokjito, apple juice brings roundness and sweetness to the whisky, with the lime juice and mint adding a perfect kick.
