Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1972

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.40 points

  1. Allandale scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    One of the best I ever tasted. Thank God. 
    • Nose
      A real old classic Ardbeg with al his tannins and tones. You name it.Honeeyed sweetness, peat, oily, moss,kelp and eucalyptus. Phenolic rather than smoky. Complex. Endless.
    • Taste
      Complex, take your time then: with drop of water: peppermint, angelica,almond oil and pine apple. Again endless.
    • Finish
      Very long and ...endless. No end yourney.

  2. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Dave Broom from scotchwhisky.com says:NOSE
    Classic old Ardbeg, with that mix of real honeyed sweetness and a peaty aspect, which seems to be sealed in halibut oil capsules alongside moss, kelp, engine oil and eucalypt. In other words it’s phenolic, rather than smoky, and all of this is fully assimilated into an elegant, oily mass. In time, a note that brings to mind smoked mozzarella. After it has breathed for an hour, you get the blast of wide, airy spaces next to the strand – and lanolin.
    PALATE
    The sooty element is now more apparent, alongside Bay Rum and bog myrtle, but it fluxes around the sweet core. Slightly fragile, as you might expect. With a drop of water there’s some peppermint, angelica, almond oil and pineapple.
    FINISH
    Long… endless. 
    CONCLUSION
    A superlative bottling.
    RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME
    Listening to Martyn Bennett.

    Scores a 9.2/10
