    Look at all the high ratings from the flippers. Blacklisted..

  2. Crazybuffon scored this whisky 91 points Member Junior

    Those who can’t feel the rum and don’t like it probably have some problems of nose or palate.

  3. Dirk did not rate this whisky Super Administrator

    510 bottles in the collection, who is going to open the first bottle ;-)

  6. schero scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    He really is not my case. What kind of rum would that have been? Definitely a "dirtier" and spicier I would guess.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Ashy smoke, slightly greasy touch, youthful touch, then acidity, sour cucumbers, freshly cut grass, phenolic, in the second nose I get a mixture of tar and black bread - quite strange
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very sweet smoke, quite creamy, here are also fruity notes of peach and grapes, ashen, also a hint of sour cucumbers although a weaker than in the nose, the second sip is almost watery even though more pressure comes from the smoke
    • Finish
      81 81
      Oak spice, some bitter and metallic smoke, very idiosyncratic notes at the end, that goes in the direction of musty and wet Warehouseboden

  7. Stef89 scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    Today freshly uncorked.

    And I am disappointed ....

    Yes, it is unmistakably an Ardbeg. Yes, he tastes good.

    But nothing to feel of rum. Hardly any sweetness, hardly any exotic fruits, hardly any spices.

    A smoker from a weak ex-bourbon barrel.

    Young, metallic, out of round.

    A very strange bitterness in the finish. Not woody, no tannins.

    Rather quinine, Campari-bitter.

    I like him because he is an Ardbeg.

    That was it.
