Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1978 AD

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

  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Serge says;

    Ardbeg 18 yo 1978/1996 (64.7%, Adelphi, cask #274, 192 bottles)   An incredibly high ABV! Nose: extremely powerful, quite smoky and minty, with a bit of eucalyptus. Notes of burnt cake… Quite some wood too. Mouth: very punchy but drinkable. Notes of hot still (metal), very sugary but almost no peat. Was it an unpeated batch? Not bad at all but a strange one… Almost as strange as Johannes' Cambodian funk yodeler (Wot, you doubt that exists? Then listen to this!) Water doesn't work too well with this Ardbeg, alas (but it might help you yodel). 80 points.
