  6. Snerik scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    I think this is a damn good peated (emphasizing) dram. Highly enjoyable!  
    • Nose
      Smoke, sweet vanilla, firewood, raspberries, seashells, padrons (the tapas dish) and some freshly cut firewood. 
    • Taste
      More smoke, more firewood, less fruity and green notes. It's actually very peaty on the palette (with a slightly buttery texture), which is a good thing.  
    • Finish
      Again, very peaty. But (!) the sweet raspberry/vanilla note find its way back and makes up for a more complex experience. 

  7. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    No, that does not convince me
    • Nose
      some smoke, sweetness, cold ashes, some vanilla with water: more vanilla, slightly malt
    • Taste
      Tender on the palate, the smoke is stronger, the alcohol is felt and bumps,
      with water: rice pudding?
    • Finish
      long, smoke is strong, cold and wet earth, tires,

    C : gold N : The ardbeg character is immediately recognizable since the opening of this bottle. Immediately, a strong hint of smoke and peat came up with a noticeable phenolic component. It also presents fresher notes of fruit, especially green apple then wet earth. Left to rest for a month it gains a few more features, persists peat and smoked emerge the vegetable component (heather and mint), imposing bitter notes of licorice and toasted coffee. P : In the mouth this dram explodes with a wide range of bitter notes from the coffee burned to the ash beyond the basic vegetal and smoke hints; open gains a little 'sweetness at the expense of the smokiness that fades allowing vanilla hints to emerge. After a month's restyled, it does not lose its bitter character, which is only slightly more pleasant with hints of extra dark chocolate and coffee and a slight spiciness of nutmeg and cloves. F : In the end there are the hints perceived on the palate leaving the mouth bitter, constant coffee and vegetable (chicory). Open, increases in salinity. The Auriverdes, released to celebrate the Brazilian World Cup, is certainly distinguished by all the ardbeg tasted so far, not one of the best, is excessively influenced by the particular methods of aging that homogenize the sensory spectrum. Intense and mellow nose, complex palate, tortured by bitter but with delicious sweet notes. In conclusion, a dram that does not disappoint the fans of arbeg, but it arouses distrust because it is a special release which is feared the mere commercial / collectibles.
