Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1976

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.25 points

  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=291 Colour: Copper Rostrot Nose: Orange, leather, tobacco and vanilla - these are the first buzz words! Sherrylastige phenols, honey, liqueur, nuts, wood, fresh raisins, beach campfire, ashes and some barbecue and oily-pickled herbs. Leading is and remains the unruly leather and tobacco note! Taste: Spicy, peaty and wood-laden. With red fruits, lots of leather, juicy tobacco leaves, espresso, balsamic, oil and an ingenious and continuous salinity. Add herbs, oak, licorice, mocha and steadily rising vanilla. Finish: Long - tart, tender woody and even slightly bitter. Spicy with nuts, herbs and partly bitter wood, fruit tea bags, caramel, peat and leather. 94 points N: 94P / G: 94P / F: 93P

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly, this is still quite a peat bomb despite its age. This is the first #239x sherry cask I've tried, and I am not disappointed at all. Not as elegant or balanced as I thought it would be (in fact, it's a bit wild at times), but this is still better than let's say the Uigeadail 2003 or 2004, which believe it or not, are in the same continuum, albeit not as good, as this #2392 and probably at less than a tenth the cost. Let's not beat around the bush though. This whisky is awesome. 94 points. At 55%, I can chug this, that's right!

    Tasting note by Serge Valentin

    Ardbeg 23 yo 1976/2000 Committee (55%, OB, sherry cask #2392, 528 b.) Big, bold and rich Ardbeg, but not the most impressive I tasted. 89 points (not solid)

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

    This Whisky was sold for 1.619 € at Whiskyauction in Jan. 2015

  5. magic_slim scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    The ultimate orgasm for peat maniacs like me. Taste this and you know, where Ardbeg's reputation comes from.
    • Nose
      Powerful with intensive peaty (Lapsang Souchong) and sherry flavors. Plenty of lemon juice and liquorice complete a punchy nose.
    • Taste
      An explosion of flavor. Bold and rich concentrate made of peat & sherry. Lapsang Souchong and liquorice are the main players with lemon zest in the background.
    • Finish
      Wooooooow!!! Never ending, mainly on peat and Lapsang Souchong. Slightly bitter. No chance to taste any other whisky the same day.
