In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 95+. My notes state an extreme peaty profile with smoky, fruity, sweet and salty aromas. The mouthfeel is bold and coating. The finish is long and adds grilled bacon to the mix. I noted its taste is comparable to the legendary Kingsbury Ardbeg 1974 (WB id 1526) with additional heavy sherry flavours. I wrote the word "perfect!".
The line-up of this tasting was absolutely stunning:
Yes, this was flabbergasting even by the high standards of the early 2000's...
