Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 2005 SMWS 33.126

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.20 points

  1. Alex scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Loads of crisp peat smoke, orange blossom water, and spicy ginger. Very clean bourbon-matured young Ardbeg. The taste is starting with a huge attack bombarding the mouth, then delivers a lot of sweetness, some apple juice and ashy smoke. Tastes youngish. The high alcohol strength hinders me to detect more flavors. With a little water added, the taste is rounder, less sweet and better balanced, but turns soon into bitter notes and dries up in the finish. That's the dilemma of this one: neat it's too fierce, but diluted it brings out too much wood. The nose I liked the most.
