Double Barrel - Ardbeg & Glenrothes


Double Barrel - Ardbeg & Glenrothes 70cl 46% vol. It is a blended malt blend of barrels from the Ardbeg distilleries, a whiskey with smoked notes and peat from Islay and Glenrothes, with nuts, honey and lemon zest from the Speyside region.

The Ardbeg Distillery


The Ardbeg distillery of the Gaelic " Àrd Beag" or "Little Cape" is located in Ardbeg, a small town on the south coast of the island of Islay, located on the west coast of Scotland. The first distillations of Ardbeg date back to 1798 although it was not legally marketed until 1815.


The whiskey produced by Ardbeg is considered one of the most disturbed whiskeys in the world, and most of its expressions use malts from Port Ellen with a level of 55 PPM. Ardbeg also does not filter in the cold, thus preserving oils and aromas from malt that would be lost if the filtrate was not omitted, and as a general rule, bottling its whiskeys well above the minimum of 40%, highlighting Ardbeg 10 to 46%, Uigeadail 54.2% and Corryvreckan at 57.1%.


Ardbeg is one of Islay's distilleries with more international recognition, highlighting;


Ardbeg Ten: Named best whiskey in the world and best single Scottish malt by famous whiskey critic Jim Murray in his guide The Whiskey Bible 2008. From 2006 to 2012, at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, he has collected a double gold medal and six silver medals. In 2015 he won another double gold medal, and has been named the best whiskey in its category, at the World Whiskey Awards 2015.

The Glenrothes Distillery


The Glenrothes dates back to 1878 and is located near Rothes, in Moray, on the banks of the Spey River, in the Scottish region of Speyside. With a capacity of 5.6 million liters per year, much of the whiskey that makes the distillery is used as part of the Cutty Sark and The Famous Grouse blends.


In the period between 1897 and 1923 the distillery suffered an explosion and several fires, destroying part of the facilities, warehouses and thousands of barrels, in 1898 the distillery was repaired and its production capacity expanded considerably .


Glenrothes differs from many other single malts in that since 1993 the single malts that it presents do not have a certain age but identify with a vintage. The character of Glenrothes whiskeys goes through a warm and creamy mouth, with prominent notes of red fruits, apricot, honey and cinnamon.

The independent bottler Douglas Laing


Founded in 1948, Douglas Laing & Co. is an independent Scotch whiskey bottler located in Glasgow. The company has famous internationally recognized and highly awarded bottling, such as Big Peat, Rock Oyster, Old Particular, Provenance, Timorous Beastie and Double Barrel.

Style: blended / vatted Malt.


Aging: Mix of malts from two distilleries of a totally opposite character, the result is a whiskey that manages to balance the characteristic notes of both distilleries under the concept that the opposite poles attract, this time Islay ( Ardbeg) and Speyside (Glenrothes).


Nose: Sweet peat, coal, from Ardbeg whiskey combined with sweet notes of nuts and honey from Glenrothes.


Mouth: The palate is soft, spicy and sweet with notes of peat that develops a maritime character, with salty notes and fires.


Finish: Long and warm, with smoke and pepper.
