  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Part of a six 50ml bottle set I shared with a friend and this is the highscrorer of the pack.

    Overall the whiskies couldn't hide to be from the same family. Very dense and absolutely packed with flavour in a way that I can't remember tasting before. Seems to be a style that is rather targeted to be bottled at youger age which is no contradiction to maturity here. Not sure the whisky could take a longer time in the cask, there is no reason for it either.

    I wish I had more than the 25ml. There is lots to explore.
    • Nose
      88 88
      slight dunnage notes, (sweet) yellow fruits (Nimm 2 bonbons or Mentos tropical). Not overly complex and narrower compared to the Virgin Oak from the same set.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Melted vanilla icecream, yellow fruits syrup, cinnamon, tickles the tongue and makes it water longing for more
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium+, taste replicates in the palate with some added wood.
