  1. Joband scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Devellops a wonderfully fat buttery note with time. Otherwise it is salt and smoke all the way but it works oh so well.

    Colour: Pale straw
    Nose: Smoked ham, iodine bandages, liquorice, vanilla, lemon zest, candied ginger, nutmeg and pepper.
    Palate: Strong peat, liquorice, grapefruit, hints of honey, vanilla, nutmeg and pepper.
    Finish: Very long, dry and smoky.
    Overall: The peat is unusually strong and medicinal in this older Ardbeg. Everything is very clean and very dry, not overly complex but truly delightful.

    Not exactly a fizzer, but nice late teen Ardbeg nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Sea salt, sand, lemon juice and barbecues. Water releases some iodine.
    • Taste
      Sweet, lemony, salty, smokey bacon and more salt.
    • Finish
      Charcoal and salt. Water lengthens it but makes it hotter.
