5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.12 points

  1. netcorpse did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Sold out within less than 20 minutes on the shop site so expect bottle flippers to pop up here at double the price shortly.
    Sold price: 110 € bottle / 157,14 € per Litre including tax. So 118€ with shipping

    Erste Ebay Inserate: 220-250€

    The Point Noir casks have sure done their work here. A different Ardbeg, but a very enjoyable dram.

      Cherries and strawberry jam right away. Ripe red berries. The cask sure has had a big influence here. Charred oak, cigar humidor, and smoky firepit.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Stewed stone fruits. Cherries jubilee. Overripe limes. Smoked wood. Burnt coffee. Dark Belgian chocolate. Peat.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Sweet, smoky, and medium length. Plenty of wood smoke, more of that dark Belgian chocolate, and walnuts.
