Ardbeg Smoketrails has touched down at Mumbai Duty Free

Indian travel retailer Mumbai Duty Free has partnered with Islay distillery Ardbeg to launch its latest global travel retail release, Ardbeg Smoketrails Manzanilla Edition.

The release has been created for smoky whisky enthusiasts, connoisseurs and those new to malts. A limited edition, the expression showcases the impact of cask maturation on the spirit.

Classic Ardbeg American oak barrels are used alongside Manzanilla sherry casks from Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Spain.

The resulting maritime, almost brine-like flavour imparted by the Manzanilla casks is said to enhance the inherent peat smoke quality.  

Given tasting notes include soot, dark chocolate, brazil nuts, pine and aniseed.

“We are delighted to exclusively offer the Ardbeg Smoketrails Manzanilla Edition at Mumbai Duty Free,” said Amit Butani, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships at the retailer.

“This remarkable whisky is a testament to the impeccable expertise and worldwide impact that Ardbeg embodies. 

“We are committed to providing our esteemed clientele with unique products that redefine the boundaries of luxury.’’
