ARDBERG
Connoisseur ARDBERG Review note
16 Jul 2018 8:40 pm
ARDBERG gave this whisky 91 points
Alcohol prominent on the nose. Behind it peaches, yellow plums, mangosteens, pineapple and mangos appear. Utterly lucious, ripe, almost dripping.

The taste is resembles the nose, with quite a strong grip and warming on the tongue and throat, and it takes a looooooooooong time going down predominantly with some ripe pineapples appearing when chewing. (If you like ripe pineapple, check out Glenlossie 1997 FR cask 6766). Oily.
Wood kicks in quite a long time after the fruits and the alcohol have been washed away from my tongue.

With water, this bad fruity boy becomes quite a fruity softie (with yellow honey melons appearing). Whereas I prefer the nose with water, I prefer drinking it without.

From a sample.

sagara-kun gave this whisky 92 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose
Nez bonbon au citron. Abricot.
Médicinal. Beaucoup d'eucalyptus.
Vraiment très bien intégré.
Léger minéral sobre.

On a aussi un léger côté beurré, presque toasté. Super.
Taste
Bouche très fruitée. Agrumes. Fruits jaunes. Miellée
Minéral qui ressort à fond.
C'est vraiment très équilibré niveau arômes. 
Légèrement floral sur les fleurs blanches. 
Un poil alcoholeux mais vu la bête ...
Finish

Finale super longue miellée sur le citron, l'acacia.

Comments

Goûté en parallèle du DL OMC 71 #5055.

Le nez est un peu moins noble, mais la bouche est sacrément racée. c'est un match nul.

Superbe.

Expert Senior helmutgw Review note

helmutgw gave this whisky 91 points

F: mittleres Gold

N: Frucht und Getreide, kein (!) Alkohol, wirkt verschlossen

G: Wow - Frucht und Getreide ohne Details - wuchtig, öliger Körper - warmer Alkohol - wird scharf, der braucht eindeutig Wasser. Hier könnten empfindsame Naturen sich erschrecken.

A: lang, alkoholisch, braucht Wasser

+H2O: Wasser und noch mehr Wasser: starke Entwicklung, die vom Alkohol blockierten Aromen treten hervor:

frische Zitrusfrüchte: Orangen/Nektarinen, Vanille, aromatisches Holz (nicht: holzig), etwas grasiges,Tee, Anis?

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Honey, melon,wax,shoe polish,citrus.

Taste

Mouth coating, viscous on almonds, lemon and it is quite drying.

Finish

Huge but the alcohol burn is prickly.

Comments

WITH WATER

Flowery and fresh cut wood, it is it seems even thicker now which I put down to the Clynelish trademark waxiness. I also get fruit gums and fruit zest.
The finish is massive but I think it needs water to enjoy it properly and not just a few drops either.

magic_slim gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Pale straw
Nose

Slightly tingling and spirity. Very fruity (passion fruit and apples) with beeswax and vanilla. Classical Clynelish although not very complex.

Taste

Powerful with oaky toffeeish notes, mirabelles, wax and a little honey. White pepper as well. Clean and lovely.

Finish

Very long, warming and satisfying, mainly on caramel and oaky notes.

Comments

A little better but quite similar to the Clynelish 1974 Rare Malts.
