Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1975

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.94 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  I had this dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting in Bonn.

    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 this 95. My notes state a dark amber colour and neither legs nor tears (oily texture at the glass).  The nose is very complex with some lacquer OBF and charcoal aromas.  The mouthfeel is warming and chewy.  The body is rich, mellow and very well balanced with beautiful peaty flavours.  The finish is long and warming.

    By the way, we drank bottle no. 83 of 252.
