  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    after the fruity and subtle Littlemill
    Day 2012 seems like a great smoke bomb
    he tastes very good to me today
    since I almost have the bottle empty now
    I can say that he tastes a little different almost every time
    which I rarely observe with me otherwise
    he did not like me the first time as much as he does now

    I touched the sky
    • Nose
      Smoke, peat, nutmeg & clove, leather & fish
      Citrus flavors, Grandma's old cupboard
    • Taste
      Candied fruit, toffee, peat smoke, ashes, seasoning,
    • Finish
      long
      Nutmeg, peat, dark cocoa, fiery smoke,

    A really good dram that isn’t quite worth what it costs to acquire today, but it doesn’t upset you to have paid that much.

    Er hat eine relativ ölige Viskosität und sein Bouquet ist von relativ starker Intensität. Ich habe Aromen von trockenem Torfrauch, Vanille, Honigsüße, Pfeifentabak, Lakritz und creme brulee. Relativ komplex. Angenehm süßlich im Geschmack. Der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden und er hat einen relativ schweren Körper.

    Wow. This is an amazing bottle of Ardbeg, I would really love another bottle of it. Its bright, young, and very intense all at the same time. This with a tobacco pipe would be the bee's knees.

    • Nose
      91 91
      Tons of peat, seaweed, brine, new leather, charcoal, lemon zest, shoepolish, vanilla, juicy fruits, cloves. One to nose for lengths of time.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Alcohol, peat and sweetness in great balance. Some medicinal flavours, spices, juicy fruit, cane suger sweetness, cloves, nutmeg, and later some more exotic spices like cinnamon and eight spice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, warm, medium dry, not much sweetness left (although after reviewing I realized it's more present 20-30 minutes after tasting, yummy), but still great balance. Medicinal and spicy notes lingering.

  9. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Bright, explosive, young, quite harmonious and interesting at all stages.
    • Nose
      Sweet smoke, wormwood, smoked fish and a little polish, dried fruits in sea salt. Later there is a wave of a mixture of red pepper with spices and vanilla, a bright and spicy confectionery mixture.
    • Taste
      Dry, spicy, pepper, burnt young wood, a drop of lemon juice
    • Finish
      Red pepper, smoothly calms and damps with vanilla, grapefruit and young wood
