  1. Schollus scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Nose: cold smoke, influence of fruit, sulphur, bacon, mineral cihe, vanilla, phenol, tar, very maritime character with powdered sugar and old furniture
    Palate: Sherry sweetness wrapped in smoke and bacon, syrupy and voluminous, perfectly balanced
    Finish: warming, persistent

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Tasted at Old and Rare 2020. Close to 4702, excellent sherried single cask, very balanced and packing a lot of punch.

  3. Prof.Schoof did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This Whisky was sold for 1.685 € at Whiskyauction in Jan. 2016and for 1.275 € in Jan. 2015

  4. magic_slim scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Excellent Ardbeg with lots of distillery character despite of the sherry hogshead.
    • Nose
      Warming, fresh and fruity (oranges). Sea spray, orange zest and smoked fish.
    • Taste
      Powerful and peaty. Austere, clean and rather dry. There are notes of smoked tea, wood and hints of sherry, but the sherry is not obvious - still a typical old Ardbeg. Very tasty.
    • Finish
      Very long, peaty and pleasant.
