Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1973 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.53 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2000]  I had this dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting at Kyrburg. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90.  My notes state an intense unusual medicinal profile with a medium finish.  The taste is like "chewing peated malted grains".  With some drops of water it gets smoother and even more complex (90 points compared to 85 without water).  The finish gets longer too.  With more water only the nose improves further but the taste flattens...
