Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1974

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.70 points

  1. Snerik scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Don’t really know how to approach a whisky like this or judge it. Given Ardbegs current marketplace context and the fact that this whisky is 15 years older than me, I can’t help but placing this in a slightly favourable context. 
    • Nose
      Well, what can one say? Notes of wood smoke, wet forest, honey, dried peaches, wet rocks, bacon. It’s just extremely elegant and layered with all these aromas. 
    • Taste
      Honey again, and peat (of course). Nice, elegant and woody, but in a very weird and pleasant way. 
    • Finish
      Well, long, balanced and elegant. Utterly amazing!
