Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1990 GM

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The best young Ardbeg I've ever had, great mix of notes and a smoke reminiscent of real vintage Ardbeg, though he was distilled in 1990 as well.
    • Nose
      Dream for a 12y in the nose, nice cold, quiet smoke, more mineral than earthy in tone unlike other Ardbeg, including great dark honey, sweet sherry with red gummy bears and fruit tea, stollen, toffee, rosemary, lavender, chalk, whiff seaweed
    • Taste
      Just like the nose, where the smoke starts a bit more clearly, then after 5-10 seconds of the great sweetness of the dark honey and the red fruits place, constantly the slight freshness and minerality, great, a little red apple and blood orange come to add to the notes of the nose
    • Finish
      Dry-sweet with some herbs, honey, dried raspberry and pebbles, medium long
