Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1996 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Simply a really nice, tasty and tasty Ardbeg. Not extremely complex but really good. I like the softness and creaminess for 50% and high smoke content.
    • Nose
      immediately recognizable as Ardbeg! Typical smoke, sea, driftwood, lots of vanilla, caramel, jellybeans, fresh, strong citrus notes, peach, oranges, lychee, memory of the Lagavulin 8yo, trail mix, increasingly sweetish to burnt sugar, barely noticeable alcohol
    • Taste
      surprisingly mild, initially little smoke, more vanilla, creamy caramel candy, now the smoke is stronger and is backed by a pepper spice and peach, apple
    • Finish
      Here the smoke comes again more clearly, but here too it remains predominantly very creamy sweet, vanilla, subtle oak, yellow apple, tangerines, peach, nuttiness, getting dry, long and beautiful finish. Complex compared to nose and taste.

  2. Murxus scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A "Ten" Deluxe?! Very pleasant stuff for shure, if you don´t look at the price tag nowadays.
