hs305 gave this whisky 88 points

[November, 2011]  I had this dram during a community society tasting near Bonn.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no further notes as I knew it before.

There is no accounting for taste...

Color
Old gold
Nose

Peat, vanilla, orange, lemon, gingerbread, dough and clove.

Taste

Peat, pepper, citrus, gingerbread and dark chocolate.

Finish

Peat, pepper, orange, gingerbread, dark chocolate and burnt wood.

Comments

Still a classic in the peated segment. It's more peppery than the Uigeadail, plus a clear bourbon influence. I actually like this one a bit better even though the Uigeadail tends to get higher scores.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Tourbe, fumée, petites touches de caramel et de fruits jaunes, noisette, sel, quelques épices.

Taste

Tourbe bouillonnante, un peu de fruit, sel marin, poivre, quelques notes boisées.

Après dilution: le fruité et le sel sont plus présents, mais la tourbe reprend rapidement le dessus.

Finish

Très longue sur la fumée de tourbe

Comments

Excellent Ardbeg.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

In der Nase ist der Rauch und der Alkohol vorherrschend. Verkohltes Holz als wesentliche Assoziation, mit zartzen karamellisierten Noten. Ziemlich trocken, völlig salzfrei, sogar zarte Aschenoten. 

Taste

Der Gaumen ist etwas runder, Rauch unterstuetzt von Holz, Richtung Abgang bewegt es sich sogar zu einem Anklang von Mustardseed mit Honig. Der Körper gehört eher zu den schwereren. 

Finish

Im Abgang kommt der Senf voll durch, dazu Rauchnoten und Ananastöne. Vorallem der Rauch ist hartnäckig.

Nose

Taste

both oily and woody, peppery, tons of smoke

Finish

extremely long Ardbeg style, lot of smoke

At first it took me some time to come around to the Peat side of scotch.
This version was highly recommended and since then, it has been harder
to come by. I have appreciated it now that I have learned that you need
to savor the flavor on this one for a good two three minutes to get the
full span. If you were to just pour and sip and drink down like it was
juice, you would lose so much of the work that went into this beauty,
enjoy if you can find it.

Remember it\'s maturity that makes whisky great! That\'s why I Love The Glenrothes! Signature Picture

As a replacement for the much-loved 1990 Airigh nam Beist, Ardbeg Corryvreckan had some pretty big shoes to fill, but the good news is that this is a belter, winning World`s Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Awards 2010 and Best No Age Statement Scotch from Jim Murray`s Whisky Bible.

I like my whisky old and my women young!Signature Picture
