Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg Ar11 ElD

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.67 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Delicious, but not quite stellar due to being heavy on primary and secondary aromas, but lacking in tertiaries. It's powerful though, and not marred by sulfur.
    • Nose
      Herbs, kelp, and syrupy BBQ sauce. Barbecued pork, burned paper, dried herbs, and lots of dark sherry notes. It is a bit loud and youthful though, not fully integrated.
    • Taste
      Feels young and sharp, but this kelpy rosemary touch with the dark sherry and voluminous peat are lovely. Thick red wine sauce, and some ultra-bitter dark chocolate. Water brings out a bit of gunpowder, and kind of reveals this thing for how it was put together, but it's still good. I'm not complaining.
    • Finish
      Long, sinking wave of dark sherry and salty, inky peat. With water, faint matchsticks.
