  1. Drum scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I like him! It has decent smoke, is rough and wild without being uncomfortable. Nice Ardbeg if you fancy a rough culinary climate.
    • Nose
      A strong smoky note can be perceived as soon as you pour it. Cold ash and the smell of a cold forge forge combined with burnt steel mixed with citrus, large flowers and rubber. The smoke is also reminiscent of smoked goods, like smoked fish... interesting!
    • Taste
      Yes, the nose continues, it is wild and stormy. Rough and greasy, with pepper and chicory.
    • Finish
      Smoky and ash with a hint of chlorine, it stays long and oily. It's nice and warm, with aromas of smoked ham and a cold hearth.

    A nice smoky, spicy dram. With a few drops of water, the aroma becomes sweeter and more vanilla. But it retains its enormous flavor. Proudly bears the name Corryvreckan.

      The wort builds up powerfully. Pepper.
      Alcohol well integrated, but easily noticeable. Loses itself with a few drops of water.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Smoke present in the mouth
      Mild woody oak
      Dry easily
      Smoked mackerel lightly

    I didn't think this Ardbeg would be such a smoky monster. The smell was a smaller "hell jackal" than I expected, but the remaining "trinity" is something you want to come back to. Amazingly, the alcohol is very well hidden and practically imperceptible to me.
    And what a little water did with this drink ... a real "frenzy of heavenly bodies". A delicate fragrance, in which notes of raisins are visible, still surrounded by strong smoke. The taste is already a storm of vanilla sweetness and smoked plum, bitterness goes to the background ... The finish still shows a light and pleasant peppery, with a very biting tongue at the end ... Small thing, happy (for adding a drop of water +2 points) ????

      quite peppery, smoky, bitter, young oak
    • Finish
      90 90
      long, smoky, burnt gum, iodine, at the end strongly warming with a slight aftertaste of vanilla

    I like the Uigeadail a little better, but you still have to try this one because it depends on your personal taste.
