  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Ardbeg
    18yo 1974/1992 (57.6%, Cadenhead Authentic
    Collection, 150th anniversary)
    Colour: gold. Nose: much more sherry
    influence, with quite some dried fruits,
    coffee, hints of sulphur, overripe
    oranges… Also chocolate, something
    very farmy… The sherry then
    fades away and leave room for quite
    some salted liquorice, pipe juice
    (yes), tar, shoe polish… Hints
    of balsamic vinegar and ham. After
    a few minutes this one starts to resemble
    the first one more and more…
    Another perfect one anyway. Mouth:
    creamy, bold, invading, incredibly
    complex, probably wider than the first
    one, with a little more honey, pistachios,
    very old rum... And a fab peat in
    this fab Ardbeg. The finish is just
    indescribable. 96 points.

    I agree with Johnfool,

    this is an Ardbeg's dream!
    • Nose
      Lots of dried fruits, dark chocolate,

      ripe apples and oranges with in the background some sherry.
    • Taste
      Very powerful and intense,but perfectly balanced,

      creamy,loveley fruitiness with lemon,oranges sweet honey

      chocolate and peat.

      Love it!
    • Finish
      Long warming finish with lots of fruit and peat.
