Farbe: Gold

Nase: Kohle, Asche, Blei, Oran­gen­schalen und rauchig gegerbtes Leder (alte Sattel­ta­schen). Jetzt die typi­sche Ardbeg-Süße aus einem Mix von Limonen, Grapefruit-Zitrone, Honig und mari­timen Salz. Kurz gesagt: gelb, frisch, leicht stechend und mit dumpfem Unterton versehen.

Geschmack: Cremig-frisch mit salziger Zitrone, torfigem Malz, Vanille, Lakritze, Euka­lyptus und einer Pfef­fer­minz­fri­sche. Nun kommen grüne Holz­noten und Kräuter hinzu – etwas schaler werdend.

Finish: Lang – Vanille im Torf­kleid. Wenn die etwas bitter-herben Noten aus dem Geschmack verklungen sind, bleibt trockenes Holz, Leder und frisch verpackte „Küsten­noten“ auf der Zunge zurück.

89 Punkte

(Nase: 91 / Geschmack: 90 / Finish: 87)

[April, 2016]  I had this dram during a private birthday tasting at Hamburg.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5.  I took no detailed notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

Ardbeg 25y 1975/2001, 58%, John Milroy’s selection, sherry but – Islay – 94/100
Eén van de vele schitterende whiskies die ik op het Lindores Whiskyfest heb kunnen proeven. Alleen weet ik niet meer of dat op de 2007 of 2008 editie was. Heerlijke en complexe neus met sherry en turf, perfect in balans. Beetje ‘farmy’. Honing ook en fruit (appels). Tabak. Aangenaam zoete, fruitige smaak op schitterende turf. Lange finish met turf en fruit. Top-botteling!

Ardbeg 25yo 1975/2001 (58%, John Milroy, sherry butt) Colour: gold. Nose: quite some sherry but the whole isn’t overly expressive. Quite some torrefaction, roasted nuts, barbecued beef, coal… Then we have lots of apples, light honey, a little wax. Quite some pipe tobacco, prunes, caramel… Gets a little dusty but nicely so. Whiffs of seawater… Most enjoyable. Mouth: very powerful, sweet but not clumsy at all, very spicy and peppery. Lots of cloves and juniper, old white wine, bold peat… Gets a little hot and almost burning but the finish is long and quite lively, on ripe fruits (strawberries), peat and vanilla. Very good balance. 91 points.
