A real scoop. This Ardbeg apparition in a gold bottle was sent - in strictly limited numbers - to journos and bloggers. In its everyday clothes it was launched officially at Ardbeg Day at the 2014 Feis Ile.

This Ardbeg has whisky that has been aged in special casks that have had their heads removed and replaced by ones that have been heat treated with a secret toasting regime. These new heads are designed to create a particular flavour profile which emphasises the notes of coffee and mocha.

This spirit is then blended with 'classic' Ardbeg from 1st and 2nd fill Bourbon barrels.

The whisky has been named for the signature colours on the Ardbeg bottle which happen to be the same as the ones on the Brazilian Flag where the World Cup kicked off on the 12th of June 2014.

49.9% ABV / 70cl

Please examine the images of the bottle, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
