Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1978 GM

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful mature Ardbeg who may show how a mature 10 year old could taste a few years later. The whisky is not as boisterous as the distillery's young whiskys. But his stature gives you an idea of ​​the power that was in him. A quiet whisky for long enjoyment. Very beautiful.
    • Nose
      Soft soft smoke mixes with the smell of lemon and salt water, then suddenly intense vanilla, in interplay with the lemons, the whisky needs a little moment in the glass to develop, the smoke is very subtle, fish in salt crust, dill, Lemon and vanilla remain dominant
    • Taste
      a soft mouthfeel and a gentle onset, the whisky runs creamy over the tongue, after the initial sweetness comes white pepper and then something sour, again lemons, salted, gentle oak and again the vanilla
    • Finish
      There is finally the smoke, and slightly bitter wood notes come after, the lemons go fast, tart vanilla remains
