Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1976

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.77 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    [April, 2000]  I had another dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting at Rolandsbogen.  The price of this fine tasting was as low as 180 Deutschmark (90 Euro) plus 70 Deutschmark for an excellent four-course dinner. 

    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 92,5 points only.  This rating might be caused by the extraordinary line-up this evening (see below), in other tastings I scored this whisky significantly better (up to 95 points)...

    It was an extraordinary decadent line-up this evening:

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    [October, 1999]  I had this dram during a tasting at Rolandsbogen.  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 dram 95.  Unfortunately no additional notes were taken (except that is was bottle 308 of 497).

    97P

    Nose: Nuts, leaves, wood, berry fruits, raisins, extremely fruity intense. Also slightly acidic to citrus fruits, mainly oranges

    Taste: very fruity, grapefruit, cherries and oranges, reminiscent of a good trochenen red wine. Smoke and salt, coffee, truffles, the high alcohol content is barely noticeable, perfect balance.

    Finish: long and fruity, orange dominate, but also smoke and some wood

    Verdict: The Ardbeg sherry casks with appropriate ripening time are something very special. Whether the new barrels are equivalent to those from the 70s remains to be seen.

  4. tebond968 scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    Ardbeg 1976/1999, 56%, OB, Manager's Choice, sherry cask, Warehouse # 10, cask 2391, 497 bottles . What a whisky! I described the first Ardbeg we tasted as blessed old Ardbeg, for this it is not enough to 'blissfully', for this I have to appeal to another vocabulary. Orgasmic, out-of-this-world ... Yes, that's it, this is alien delicious whisky. Sublime fruity sherry mixed with equally fantastic soft, sweet peat. Thereby interwoven you get gorgeous coastal elements as a bonus (think of the best oysters you ever ate). I wrote smoked meat. Black Woudham, I love it. A roasted touch is added to the taste. Stunning as they say. Great (that adjective we have not had yet?) Aftertaste. Sensual, big whisky. 96/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/12/22/de-hoogmis/

  6. corbuso scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    An excellent complex, peated and maritime Ardbeg, with a well rounded, rather heavy sherry influence fused with peat smoke and other flavours. Very enjoyable.
