Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1975 DL
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.98 points
- Many thanks to Royalscotsman for the sample, old musty, zesty but such a thick mouthfeel. Great, great, great!
- [November, 2002] I had this dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting in Bonn.
In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 92,5. My notes state an average blonde colour and thin legs with late big tears (oily texture at the glass). The nose is very intense and complex with fine lacquer aromas (acetone) that I call "old bottle flavour (OBF)". It is a sign of a high quality spirit with a perfect maturation. The mouthfeel is both bold and smooth. The taste is COMPLEX (I wrote the word in capital letters) with beautiful peaty flavours as well as cocoa (bittersweet) and dry dusty aromas. The finish is long, sweet, warming and very nicely balanced.
- Sweet fruits, christmas cake, old leather, cream, toffee, fresh grass notes on nose.
Peated smoke, creosote, green apples, spices and oak cask notes on palate.
Spices, vanilla, dryness, light peated smoke notes on long finish.
- Very delicate.
