      A journey through time. Solid, gentle and yet powerful smoke, old books, cigar boxes, oak, cocoa powder, charcoal, sun-dried fruits, library, old wooden boxes, lemon peel, falling ash, sea air, iodine, fruit tobacco, leather armchairs. Over time, a heavy, almost greasy sweetness becomes noticeable. Honest, mature, sublime.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Intense and powerful, the mouth is filled with smoke and wood notes, maritime notes, dark chocolate and espresso, again dry wood, cigars, salt and spices.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Wood chips, ash, smoke, oak and dark chocolate, light spices, seaweed. Long, heavy and smoky.

    It is of an oily viscosity and its bouquet is of a relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of dry peat smoke, herbs, citrus fruit, cigar smoke, oak, marine notes and vanilla. Relatively complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. The alcohol is very well integrated and it has a relatively heavy body.

    Ardbeg 25y 'Lord of the Isles', 46%, OB 2003 - Islay - 91/100
    Sample of the Whiskyfest 2007 in Ostend. Tasty Ardbeg nose with lots of 'sea' (salt & iodine), smoke and orange. Soft taste, very fruity (lemon), sweet and slightly bitter (caramel), little wood, pepper and pleasant peat. Complex. Very long aftertaste, medicinal, smoky. Subtle enjoyment! http://onversneden.com/2008/05/20/ardbeg/
