  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 94 points Moderator

    Very complex, perfectly balanced, everything that a good peated whisky should have - great stuff!
    • Nose
      94 94
      Plenty of peat and smoke, citric, lemon, iodine, smoked fish, oysters, sea shell, hints of vanilla, some minerals, limestone, green fruits, little camphor - very good!
    • Taste
      95 95
      Very very oily, creamy, but still clean and sharp, lemons, subtle sweetness, bonfire, more minerals, more peat, yellow fruits, peaches, pears, liquorice - excellent!
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, warm, a bit more herbal, old books

  2. ontherocks scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    One of the best whiskies I ever tried. It`s not as round as most of the 74s, but these slightly "mean" notes many 73s have, make this one so attractive. Early 70ies Ardbeg in perfection!
