1.Nase ohne Bewegung:

wow
Efeu
süßer heller Karamell
Möbelpolitur & Rosenwasser
Salz

ein Flashback an Lokum
dann:
Meerwasser, maritim süß
salzig, intensiv Meer
Bohnerwachs- und Schwefelnoten

Leben fühlen
unbedingt etwas fühlen um zu wissen, dass Du lebst
wenn Du das willst
bist Du hier richtig

2.Nase mit Bewegung 
es ist Dir, als könntest Du den dunklen feuchten Meeresgrund riechen
öliger heller Sherry ist in Deinem Glas 
rote Meerbarben mit Zitronen auf Deinem Teller
Deine Finger zerreiben das grobe Meersalz
der warme Tag am Meer liegt schwer in der Luft
er brennt, als müsse er sich noch entladen um Ruhe zu finden
Du riechst Gewitter und Feuer wie eine süße Verheißung
der honiggelbe Sherry  - ölig schwer und träge -
verspricht Dir süße Freuden
Du kannst das Fass riechen in dem er so viele Jahre lag
Holz und Lakritz
Du zerdrückst die Zitronen über die Fische
Ihr Saft läuft über Deine salzverklebten Finger
ein Lächeln 
Du lebst und möchtest mehr

Taste

über Deine Zunge und Deinen Gaumen gleitet er elegant und geschmackvoll

verwöhnt Dich 
volle würzig süße Aromen 
sehr maritim
erst als er Deinen Rachen berührt, entzündet sich ein Feuer
entlädt sich die Spannung
rauchende Glut und Pfeffer
Entspannung 
Aromen entfalten sich 
zu einem langen Geschmackserlebnis
Du bestellst Dir einen Espresso

Comments

ein sehr intensiver charaktervoller Ardbeg

Marko würde sagen, an dem kann man ewig kauen
tatsächlich fühle ich jetzt sogar eine medizinische Note
am Gaumen fühlt man sehr schön das Alter
yes, I'm in heaven
unforgettable whisky takes you on a journey, gives you new dreams, awakens your forgotten dreams, moves you out of time.....

Nose: Waves of Ardbeg beach campfire smoke at first. Once past the smoke there are oysters and spices, Tabasco sauce perhaps. The fino notes remind me of a tarte Gosset blanc de blanc champagne. Some bread notes but also the cashew nuts. Lastly, the sweet Ardbeg peat comes through. It has citrus, lemons and limes, but there is minerality here too.

Palate: smoked lemons, smoked limes. But they are oily and the oils coat the mouth. Oh so pleasing. The n nuts and pear fruits I get pears from fino) appear and the finish is extremely smooth and elegant, certainly in the fashion of a good funk Sherry. This is a beautiful marriage of malt and cask. It's not a Sherry bomb or a fruit bomb. It's cleaner and svelte. It has Elegance and depth and strong character. This malt really transports the mind to those salty Islay shores during a spring/summer day. 95/100.

Ardbeg 1975/2006 'Islay Festival 2006' (46.3%, OB, fino cask #4717, 165 bottles) Most interestingly, the Ardbeg for the festival is at 299 GBP this year, three times the price they asked for the 2002 release. I guess you can get a small used car for that price. Why so much money? ‘Because we haven’t got many of these casks left’ did they tell us quite apologetically at Ardbeg while something like an embarrassed angel was flying around us in the Old Kiln Shop. No wonder many friends who used to collect Ardbeg already quitted since a few months or years. Anyway, no other comments needed except this: ‘better be good!’… Let’s try it… Colour: straw. Nose: very pure and clean at first nosing, vegetal and quite farmy. Lots of peat and lots of smoke (it’s hugely smoky in fact), with little fino influence I think, immensely clean. Gets then much more maritime, with notes of seashells, oysters... Goes on with quite some green pepper, curry, peppercorn, then lime… Really ‘straight’, really pure, with also quite some minerality. Mouth: starts quite lemony, with ‘of course’ lots of peat and smoke. Goes on with fresh almonds, marzipan, a little paraffin… Again, it’s very pure and straight. Not violent at all, rather soft… Finish: not too long but very, very classy, with quite some spices, nutmeg and pepper. A brilliant Ardbeg but again, at 299 GBP, it had to be good… (yeah, yeah). 95 points.
