  2. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Clear better than the 77er, but behind the 1974er. Similar in taste to the 1974, but it tasted even better. Slightly oily and harmonious. On Neudeutsch: Just like other jar jar 74, weird these. Gives good oil has no water in it. When burn dwelling house, extinguish fischier, collect water and drink almost no matter. Is cheaper, only house teuier then.

    Ardbeg 1976/2004 (43%, Gordon & MacPhail, Connoisseur’s Choice) Colour: pale gold. Nose: wow, even at 43%, this tells us how much Ardbeg was a fabulous whisky back in the mid-1970s (not that it isn’t anymore, mind you.) Exceptional mix of leather, tar, liquorice, warm butter, cough syrup, iodine, horseradish, kelp, caramelised apples and diesel oil. Only lacks a little length on the nose. Mouth: excellent body and powerful attack but once again, that doesn’t last for too long, which may well be this one’s only flaw. Both ashier and fruitier than on the nose (more cooked apples) but also beautifully salty and coastal, with notes of cough syrup and almond milk, getting then more citrusy. Finish: too bad it’s a tad shortish but other than that it’s perfect, with something flinty like in some white sauvignons. Comments: top notch Ardbeg as far as the profile is concerned but lacks just a little oomph to make it to 90+ in my book. SGP:457 - 89 points.
