Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1975 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.30 points

  1. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Color: Deep Gold

    I can not do anything with that. As if a mad 80s Bowmore had just blinded the Ledaig of. However, the first "smoker" (almost no smoke there), where I taste something like "medical notes".
    • Nose
      Citrus, charred lemon zest, a peculiar note between sweetish corpse smell and freshly impregnated leather, bicycle tube, dill. With a little life he also seems overly perfumed.
    • Taste
      Here then actually slightly smoky, mixed with Old bottle flavor, lemony-soapy, artificial, some lilac ?, purulent gauze bandage. Humus, old wood.
    • Finish
      Lilac blossom, bitter almond flavor. Medium.

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    From the nose to the finish he is very consistent blindly I would have typed Littlemill and gave him 90 points because he is an Ardbeg, he only gets 88 points
    • Nose
      sweet caramel with floral notes, delicate smoke in the background, sweet ripe apricot meat, English roses, spice in the background - nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, rose oil with some frankincense
    • Taste
      cool oily onset, absinthe with plenty of water, then warming on the tongue, it cools quickly on the palate and develops floral and fruity notes in essential oils, a little perfumed, sweet, virtually no smoke, apricot remains on the tongue
    • Finish
      medium dry sweet yellow fruit - apricot, apricot kernels, floral oily,

  3. bakerman scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    light for an Ardbeg, but full of flavours in a great combination :-)
    • Nose
      bandages, medicinal, iodine, liquorice, lemon and oranges, waxy, peat (but not a lot), later chocolate toffee (Stork Riesen)
    • Taste
      iodine, spicy, bandages (never tried them..), early grey tea, sweet
    • Finish
      medicinal and (finally) smoky, bandages again
