  1. MrJensen scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Very interesting release not at all, as I expected. More smoke and charcoal than normal mixed with sweet and bitter flavors.
    • Nose
      84 84
      A lot of charcoal, sweet apple pie, lime, leather, peat
    • Taste
      85 85
      What a surprise not what I expected and not a typical Ardbeg imo.
      Burned wood, peat, bitter hops, malt, citrus, cooked fruit
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long oily feeling in the mouth.
      Short light bitterness, oak, malt

    Expectedly smoky, and very sweet release.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Smoke, through which you catch the aromas of plum jam, marshmallows and oriental sweets.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The taste is smoky and sweet. Turkish delight.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The aftertaste is sweet, smoky, of medium duration.

    Over priced, almost like the 10. Ardbeg’s entire business model for Feis Ile and special releases seem to be based on hype, fancy labels, silly names, and high prices. This is very similar to the 10, except a tad smokier. Not worth the premium...get the 10, Corry or Uigi instead

    Tried a sample of the scorch yesterday, it’s a nice dram, but it’s also a very young dram. Not very sure what’s all about this one. It’s definitely a smooth one, but also quite pricey and no age given.
