Ardbeg 1965 Cask 3678 & 3679 39 Year Old - Moet Hennessy Australia 70cl & 5cl / 42.1%
09 July 2019
A bottle of Ardbeg 39 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This was distilled in 1965 and bottled from two casks in 2005. This comes in a hand blown bottle with a numbered wax seal, and includes a miniature bottle of the same whisky. This was imported to Australia by Moet Hennessy Australia Pty Limited.
This is bottle number 179 of 261; it was bottled from cask numbers 3678 and 3679.
Ardbeg distillery began producing whisky commercially in 1815 and quickly became a valued fixture in the Islay community, with housing, a school and even a bowling green on the site. The distillery went through tough times in the early 20th century and was acquired by DCL and Hiram Walker in 1959. An increased demand for peated whisky in the 1960s and '70s saw Ardbeg source malt from nearby Port Ellen, and the late 1970s marked the end of an era of self-sufficiency for the distillery. Mothballed in the 1980s and purchased by Glenmorangie in 1997, today it is part of LVMH. Despite its turbulent history, the distillery maintains a cult following, with over 120000 members of the Ardbeg Committee worldwide.
