Ardbeg Rollercoaster

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

The next Ardbeg is called Ardbeg Rollercoaster. I can’t say I really like the name, but as long as the whisky itself is good, I don’t mind.

Ardbeg Rollercoaster Anyway this document listed a number of brand registrations owned by Moet Hennessy USA… Corryvreckan is there, Supernova is there,  and Ardbeg Rollercoaster was registered just two months ago.

In the meantime, we already have some details. It’s made from one cask of each year between 1997 and 2006 and it will be launched on February 15 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the committee. Price: around € 60.

    Any details on the types of casks used? How about the number of bottles?

    Great to hear that it tastes delicious.

    One refill sherry butt and 9 first fill or refill bourbon casks. My quick calculation says that there should be enough for +/- 2750 bottles.

  • Tudval: Just because canadian whisky 'can' have other stuff in it, doesn't mean it does. Regulation is not the be all and end all. Certainly these days there
