  1. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes:

    Smell the sea beside the Spey   
    Cask number 90.12   

    This is from a Dufftown distillery, rarely bottled by its proprietor and now demolished. But it noses and tastes like a coastal malt: lightly medicinal (Alka-Selza), maritime but with floral notes, “salt and stones” with earth and ozone. But the taste is Speyside - barley sugar, with mint leaves and unripe brambles; mouth-furring – and water continues this identity, with violets and lily-of-the-valley, but still with echoes of a river as it nears the sea. Sweet and centre-palate to taste, with a pleasant mouthfeel and a medium length.

    Drinking tip:    Late summer on the riverbank listening to Bruce Springsteen

    Colour: Late summer corn   

    Summary note on the bottle:
    Surprising maritime in character for a Speyside malt, to start with – light medicinal, earth and ozone, but with floral notes which develop with water into lily-of-the-valley and violets. Sweet and centre palate to taste.
