  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Tary and fruity aroma, orange, mango, banana, toffee, nutmeg and cardamom. Vanilla sweet and smoky taste, pepper, peat, mint, malt and juniper berries. Long, smoky and malty end.

  4. markjedi1 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This young Ardbeg surprised me mostly on the wonderful nose, but on the palate, while more than okay, could not keep up.
    • Nose
      The nose starts on peat and tar, but also struck matches and smoldering fire. Some obligatory seaweed and salt. But it turns sweet and fruity almost instantly, with liquorice, pear and (do not laugh) strawberries! I took my time to be absolutely sure, for I could hardly believe it. But truly: smoked strawberries. It evolves further in the glass, showing a sourish side.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is rather soft and docile and, after the fruity start (apples and grapefruit, this time), becomes very salty. Peatsmoke plays second fiddle.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length on citrus and light pepper.
