Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1991 LMDW

- Wow, this is great Ardbeg on sherry. Just enough peat
and just enough sherry to not turn it into an extreme fellow. Thanks, Arnout!
Last saw this at an auction in May 2012, where it changed hands for 240 EUR.
The nose is a bit dirty (which is a good think) on
ashes, leather seats from an old sports car, garden hose (or is it the tube of
a bicycle tyre?) on the one hand versus rhubarb, figs, almonds and chocolate on
the other. Hints also of salt and smoke, but all the way in the back. This one
is mostly sweet. Coffee frappé.
On the palate, the typical Ardbeg traits remains
aloof, while it offers a lot of sweetness. Almonds and dried dark fruits, dades
wrapped in bacon and again coffee frappé. Slowly but surely the sweet peat and
seaweeds kick in. Nice balance. No water is needed.
More of the same in the long finish.
