    [November, 2003] Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 72 Euro in October, 2003.

    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 90. I took no further notes.

    Ardbeg 1977, 46%, OB 2002
    The smell of this whisky reminds me of a walk along the beach, but also on a campfire. Well, a campfire on the beach. I think that is forbidden in the meantime, but that's how it smells. Silty, seaweed, iodine and smoke. Some fruit through it. Orange and mandarin. Delicate and elegant, with little peat. The mouthfeel is oily, creamy and light. Soft smoke, quite some citrus, vanilla (best sweet), slightly salty notes, meat. A ham on the spit (above that fire on the beach). The peat (smoke) grows, and makes it pleasantly drying after some time. Herbs come with it, just like a bit of tar. But it all remains silky soft. Very long, warming aftertaste on peat smoke and orange. Complex and elegant whisky, classic seventies Ardbeg actually. 91/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/10/22/ardbeg-1977/
