    The nose is youthful .... reminds the Alligator ... the body is not enough in contrast to the degree ... the flaw in the taste is compensated by the long aftertaste ... well, but 86 ... for now) ... 87 for me it's a little holiday .. and he good in its simplicity ... sorry but 86

    Quite fresh on the nose for 25 years, but - almost inevitably - not youthful. A rather straight nose. The smoke is reminiscent of barbecue. Spicy meat with smoky BBQ sauce. Also citrus notes. And to stick to the topic of barbecuing, maybe something like mango chutney.
    A nice sweetness in the mouth. Candy sugar. Plus a good surge of smoke. Rather herbal and phenolic. A little peach. More peel than pulp. Then pleasant oak flavor and ashy smoke.

    He likes it well. Relatively straightforward, but with depth. Was delicious.

    Many thanks to Achim Belza for the great dram that I was able to enjoy with him in the middle of the Corona crisis.

    A wonderfully full whisky, with force, a lot of wood, a pleasant sherry sweetness and the peppery Ardbegnote with an eternally long warm smoky reverberation that extends into the pit of the stomach. Great pleasure

  8. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    87 Yummy. It looks like Ardbeg. But for 25 years does not pull.
    Nose: campfire smoke, pepper, smoked meats.
    Flavor: pepper mixture
    Finish: medium-long, pleasant, with a drop of polish.

  9. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Ardbeg, classic ardbeg. Rectilinear, peppery, balanced

  10. TomBx scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    According to an undoubtedly credible staff member of the distillery - it's an Ardbeg!!! And it doesn't taste too dissimilar to their current "Twenty Somethings"...

    Hard to beat at that kind of a price...
