    Tasted this one Blind during the 17th BOL tasting "Islay Peat ... or not?"

    I guessed: Port Charlotte, wrong!
    • Nose
      83 83
      clean solid peat, initially something meaty, quite some wood and fennel. something earthy, wet bandaid
    • Taste
      82 82
      full and tasty, strong body with ash and peat, initially something sour / astringent, but now more metallic, perhaps some seaweed?
    • Finish
      83 83
      quite nice finish, oily and mouthcoating, earthy peat with laurel, but little evolution

  4. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    17th BOL tasting of the Pilot Olympics. "Islay Peat ... or not?
    • Nose
      Peaty, sambal, earthy, briny, iron and some coconut. Fruity, wet bandage and sigar leafs.
    • Taste
      Very tasty and a bit young so not to complex with ashes, peat, vanilla, seaweed and rubber.
    • Finish
      A bit drying, very peaty, pepper, citrus - bitter lemon, smoke and vanilla.

  6. [2stoned] aKu scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I like that very well. In contrast to the Laphroaig 10, which I find a bit watery, the Ardbeg has 46% enough Alk. Not to work.
    • Nose
      warming, strong medical smoke; buttery; Vanilla and caramel; a light herbal mix; wet, old hay; behind it hide a few yellow apples and apricots; everything is accompanied by a nice lemon candy sweetness; Over time, some greased leather is added
    • Taste
      smoke immediately; Oily from the mouth feeling, buttery in the taste; Herbs; damp forest soil; gentle approach of wooden planks soaked in salt water; behind everything again some vanilla and caramel; a touch of black pepper
    • Finish
      again the damp forest floor; a little musty; a few old, damp pine needles; old leather; nat. Smoke; quite a long time

  9. drkrylov scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very nice whisky -- the whisky with body and soul.
    • Nose
      Smoke, brine, iodine dryness.
    • Taste
      Skips sweetly along at first, then becomes mean and moody.
    • Finish
      Hefty, lots of iodine.
