  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A wonderful, young Ardbeg. The finish could have been longer, though.
    • Nose
      Hmmm, typical Ardbeg at first. You can smell it is young. Smoke, peat and green apples. Feisty and fruity. Okay, this is not very complex, but who cares? It is good. Hang on. Give him a few more minutes and you will get some banana and marzipan, I kid you not!
    • Taste
      The attack is very sweet. Fruity with some liquorice. Midpalate, the salt and peat march onto the tongue, flanked by white pepper. Again very young and straightforward, but very pleasant. And eminently quaffable undiluted.
    • Finish
      The finish is short, briny and smoky.
