Ardbeg 15yo 1973/1988 (53.4%, Sestante, clear glass yellow/green label) Cololur: straw. Nose: a little more discreet at first nosing, probably smoother and sweeter. It smells a little clumsy after the fab Intertrade. Lots of apple juice, sugared smoked tea, spearmint and cold camomile tea. Also rather grainy, on porridge, cereals… Little peat here, at least when compared to the Intertrade. Not very ‘Ardbeg’, strangely, like if it was a finish (chenin?) Mouth: sweeter but very great as well. Maybe a tad more on vanilla, fruitier, more on apple skins and walnuts, waxier, maybe a tad greener but what a great one again. Not quite as perfect as the Intertrade, though. 92 points.
