    Found this one pretty close to the Kingsbury peat smoked bacon spices herbal notes, an amazing ardbeg

  2. dram-drinker scored this whisky 95 points Moderator

    Very powerful and balanced - fantastic!
    Pretty much on the same level like the Ardbeg 1974 by Samaroli
    • Nose
      95 95
      Extremely citric, fruity, honeydew, hints of vanilla, peat and smoke, bonfire, iodine, smoked ham, bacon (and scrambled eggs) - superb!
    • Taste
      96 96
      Oily, fruity, salty, seaweed, subtle sweetness, fruitiness, pepper, vanilla, of course more peat and smoke - excellent!
    • Finish
      94 94
      Long, more punchy, burning, good sweetness - works with water
