Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1975 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.06 points

  1. UsquebaughNL scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    Ardbeg 30 yo 1975/2005 (47.8%, Douglas Laing Platinum, 274 bottles) Colour: straw. Nose: starts a little less expressively than the ‘180’ but much straighter, cleaner and more typically Ardbeg. At random, we have gunflints, peat smoke, wet wool, seashells, wet earth (and clay), humus, our beloved ‘clean wet dog’ (sorry again, dogs), brown coal, almonds, lemons and green tea. Bl**dy typical. No sign of sour apple notes this time. Mouth: yes, this a nicely sharp, peaty, lemony and earthy Ardbeg. Big saltiness again, notes of cough syrup, a little mint, lemon pie, pepper, rather big notes of verbena, liquorice... Excellent Ardbeg this time (but it makes its bro even more underwhelming by comparison). Finish: lingering, peaty, lemony, peppery and salty. Classic. SGP:158 – 90 points.
