Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 2001

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.57 points

  1. Anthaeus scored this whisky 94 points Expert Junior

    More powerful in the nose than you would expect from age and alcohol content. Intense notes of smoke and coniferous forest, which form an enormous contrast to the mouthfeel. There the Ardbeg is surprisingly soft and elegant, almost gentle. Ripe pieces of pineapple that have been briefly smoked in the smoker. Despite its age, the phenols are still very present. 20 years is a good Ardbeg age - from my point of view it shows a nice multi-dimensional view of this exceptional style. It's a shame that probably only a few liters of this nectar will actually be used for its intended purpose.

    The second time in the glass today:
    A dreamy nose! Pineapple, lemon cake and a nice, Ardbeg typical smoky note. Also in terms of taste a fine and intense Ardbeg that knows how to convince in terms of quality. A really nice part!
