  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 98 points Connoisseur

    Probably the best whisky I have ever tasted. Wow, what a dark color - unbelievable. Sampled from Geert at the Lindores Whiskyfest 2012.
    • Nose
      Oh my god, I am in whisky heaven! Woooowww, slurppp, schmatz, fantastic, mnjammnjammnjam !!!! This shall be Ardbeg??? Rich and complex, a beautiful high quality sherry monster at first nosing. Dark berries, plums, oloroso sherry, marble cake, chewing tobacco and juicy liquorice. Decent peat and smoke are a available after digging a little deeper into this whisky wonder of the world.
    • Taste
      Plopp, has knocked my socks off! Here is what I call a perfect sherry wood matured Ardbeg. There is a rich peaty- and saltyness with Ramazotti, liquorice and cacao. Pleasantly dry and oily with decent notes of old wood.
    • Finish
      Very long ... longer ... longest ... never ending.
      Remains rich predominantly on aromas of 85% cacao dark chocolate.
