  1. ricallende scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Lighter than usual, a good dram for summer
    • Nose
      Light, very light indeed. Surprisingly some peat smoke and ash, very little but more than expected. Rather fruity with green apples, fresh lemons and some kiwis. Small hints of salty caramel and vanilla.
    • Taste
      A tad more smokey and ashy now, but not a lot. All the fruits are back plus some peaches and lemon zest.
    • Finish
      Short and fruity. Pretty lemony with hints of peat smoke.

    Light smoky notes, a little bit of fruit (mainly green apple) and vanilla on top. Nothing that will stick to your mind for a long time but it’s a good, light dram on a hot summer day when Uigeadails or Corryvreckans are quite strong to boot. It’s worth its original price of 55 euro’s but definitely not more than that. For 100+ euro’s, you better start looking for an old Uigeadail or an old Corryvreckan instead!

  8. schengel10 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Perhaps the most untypical Ardbeg of all time.
    [Color] almost clear;
    • Nose
      fine smoky notes, typical Ardbeg sweetness, delicate vanilla;
    • Taste
      pleasantly soft onset, beautiful vanilla, low smoke, sweet and creamy; light;
    • Finish
      medium in length with vanilla; in the end sweetness and the finest smoke;

  9. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    he is not that bad now, very soft and young. Plays in the categories of the other young, medium to slightly peated Highlander. I have no idea what it cost at the time, but for 30 euros this would be a delicious, fresh whisky.
    • Nose
      sweet, quite young, very fruity, canned fruit mix, some smoke, a little crap. Mouth: Very soft, and easy going. A little vanilla, some fruit, that's all.
    • Taste
      Here comes the smoke for the first time, with a little vanilla. Generally, the remains rather sweet and fresh.
    • Finish
      available
