    Tasting note by Serge Valentin

    Ardbeg 1975/1990 (57%, Duthie for Samaroli, Flowers, 480 bottles) Already had this one but it didn’t convince me, so this is second try. Colour: straw. Nose: extremely mashy and farmy, porridgy, almost cheesy… Very organic, to say the least. Goes on of peppered yoghurt (wazzat?), all kinds of herbs, then bunches of various spices such as black pepper and green curry, and of course wet dog. One of the wildest and most organic Ardbegs I could taste. Mouth: sweeter but very peppery, yeasty, hugely spicy and kind of ‘natural’. Lots of porridge again, soaked grains, oatcake, smoked trout, rollmops, green pepper… The peat is rather huge and very, very farmy just like on the nose. Not maritime at all. 

    The finish is very long, just as peaty, peppery and porridgy, the whole being maybe a little ‘youngish’. I’m on the side of the people who think that Ardbeg needs time to get truly great (and God knows it does when it’s fully mature!) 87 points, still, much higher than when I first had it (never published those notes).
