Ardbeg launches exceptionally rare & limited Batch 4 of Traigh Bhan in India

This is Ardbeg’s first step in fulfilling the growing demand for its prestige offerings in the country. 

October 20, 2022: Ardbeg will soon debut a limited-edition expression from its revered prestige range in India. The fourth bottling of its permanent 19-year-old expression, Ardbeg Traigh Bhan (pronounced tri-van), is available in the country exclusively via Duty-Free retail outlets in Mumbai and Delhi airports. 

Ardbeg Traigh Bhan Batch 4
Produced in small batches and released year-on-year, Ardbeg Traigh Bhan 19 Years Old Batch 4 is an exceptionally rare and ever-changing whisky, drawing its inspiration from Islay’s Traigh Bhan beach, known locally as the Singing Sands. Matured with a higher proportion of Oloroso Sherry casks, Batch Four is subtly different to the previous releases of Traigh Bhan, taking on more flavours of chocolate and raisin alongside a distinctive menthol character.  
The taste profile isn’t the only thing that changes year-on-year. Each Traigh Bhan whisky carries its unique batch code, batch symbol and signature from one of the Distillery’s famous faces – this year, Colin Gordon, the Distillery Manager. 
Mr. Gordon commented, “I’m absolutely delighted to put my name to this batch of Ardbeg Traigh Bhan, inspired by one of the most beautiful spots on Islay. It’s a delicious dram, and the fact that each bottling is a little bit different adds to the fun. I know Ardbeggians and their friends enjoy comparing the finer details of this ever-changing whisky.”
Dr. Bill Lumsden, Ardbeg’s Master Distiller, said, “Ardbeg 19 Years Old Traigh Bhan Batch 4 is another incredible iteration in the series. It follows in the footsteps of previous bottlings, but thanks to some tweaks to the recipe, we’ve brought more woodsmoke, menthol and aniseed to the fore. This is an impossibly balanced, not-to-be-missed Ardbeg.”
