  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    Full gold
    Nose:
    Oh what a nice "dirty" nose !!! Asphalt, coal, peat, medicinal notes, but also the finest sweet fruit flavors that flare up in between. Phenolladen to stop and again these "dirty" flavors! Dude, no young Ardbeg in top form and in drinking strength - fantastic !!
    Taste:
    Unfortunately phenomenal! Peat, phenols, sweet fruits of juicy, honey-laden melons and limes. Including coal, ashes, hot asphalt, smoke and all imaginable "dirty" notes that combined result in a perfect whisky in drinking strength. In short: perfection in the glass !!
    Finish:
    Long - and again just perfect. With the notes of the taste long fading away (and despite the length unfortunately too fast). Another Ardbeg, not of this world!
    Comment:
    1972 - what else can one say. High end malt with 40%. As an Ardbeg should always taste :)
