  2. Fred Labosch scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Yoghurt, whey, hay, farmyard, earthy peat.

    My first impression makes me think of younger, independently bottled, heavily peated Bunnahabhain, and that is not exactly a compliment.

    We'll see how the bottle progresses...

  3. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    An honest but very (too) young Ardbeg. We feel the potential of the distillery, but we remain very, very far from the quality of the 10 year old.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Super young nose. Lots of liveliness, lemon, peat, gentian. A little synthol. We do not find the gourmet side of Ten.
    • Taste
      84 84
      A little rough, bitter, vegetal in the mouth, followed by a lot of peat. Slightly creamy texture, not very sweet, but we could hope for better. More iodized finish, synthol.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Peppery, grassy, rather ashy and peaty finish. Quite hard.
