    whiskyfunArdbeg 1974/2006 (53.5%, OB, Italy, bourbon, cask #3328, 76 bottles) A very little outturn. Nose: fantastic attack on fresh walnuts and then plain peat smoke. Really explodes after that, on camphor, eucalyptus, soft spices and lemon. And olive oil. And lemon. And marzipan. And beeswax. Amazing, getting more and more medicinal after the first ten minutes. Mouth: one of the powerful ones, starting on bitter almonds, developing on more and more quince and cough drops. Also more vanilla than usual. Long finish, rather rounder and candied. Magical! SGP:567 – 94 points.

    whiskynotes
    Nose: starts a bit heavy and heady, it’s definitely not a softie. Sharp lemon zest, walnut skins and plenty of medicinal notes. Brings along some sweeter notes like sugared almonds, herbal honey and wax candles. Great evolution and even better with a drop of water: it becomes smoother with lots of vanilla. Mouth: very powerful again. Huge sooty notes, hot ashes and a kippery side. Leather. Then some sweet and herbal notes, becoming slightly bitter as in herbal liqueur or cough syrup. Dark roast coffee. I prefer this with a few drops of water again, it seems a little unbalanced at full strength. Finish: very long, with vanilla notes, earthy peat and hints of grapefruit.
    Another wonderful Ardbeg 1974, but it takes some fiddling with water to find the optimal strength to unleash its magic. Around € 2300 if you find one.
    Score: 94/100
