  1. tebond968 scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    Ardbeg 32y 1974/2006, 52.5%, OB for LMDW, cask 3309, 109 bottles - Islay - 96/100
    Very beautiful nose with peat and herbs. Free medicinal. Honey also, of the best kind. And vanilla and (citrus) fruit. Delicious smoky and salty (smoked bacon). The taste largely confirms the nose ... honey, smoke, salt, something medicinal. This is absolute top! Well, for 700 euros you do not expect any mess. Long salty and smoky finish. I love it! With flag and streamer my best Ardbeg to date. http://onversneden.com/2008/09/23/kleppers-ardbeg-32y-19742006-for-lmdw/

  3. maltinger did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Ardbeg 32 yo 1974 (52,5%, OB for LMdW 2006, bourbon cask #3309, 109 btl.)Nose: oh that balance. A herbal nose in the beginning, rosemary, some
    hay, camphor. A honey and marzipan sweetness in the back. Vanilla
    almond cookies. Then back to walnuts and dusty warehouse floors. Cold
    ashes. Dried meats. Nice waxy notes too, old paraffin candles. Mouth:
    oh, even more medicinal than I expected. Walnuts, thyme, quite some
    brine and tarry ropes, camphor, salmiak, hints of Fernet-Branca and
    Picon. More cold smoke. Wonderful, though sharper than expected. Finish:
    very long, very coastal and smoky.
    Wonderful Ardbeg, better than sister cask #3328. One of my favourite Ardbegs so far, together with the 1973 Old & Rare Platinum. It used to be available for € 350, a lot of money already but in hindsight well worth it.
    Score: 95/100
