In honor of Ardbeg’s 200th anniversary, the distillery has launched Perpetuum, a combination of young and old whisky that is then matured in sherry and bourbon barrels. The use of old and young whisky is a tribute to the history of the distillery from its inception in 1815 to today. Perpetuum is driven by the strong, smoky, peaty flavor that Ardbeg fans look forward to as well as rich, sweet toffee and vanilla undertones.
