- Cold ashes in the beginning. Then a round and greedy side that settles. Very cool. Then he calms down a bit to deliver mostly caramel. Peat is more discreet. On the palate, his age speaks with a lot of generosity, rich caramel. Pepper too. Alcohol is very well integrated. Chocolate finish. With a little water, the nose becomes even more biscuity and creamy. In the mouth, it is tasty and more fruity. The finale, she, recalls the origin of this whisky with iodine, salt and ashes. Enthusiasm 4/5

long finish, a little bitter, later turning into sweet
- Green and sweet nose, cold ash, iodine point, not very expressive. Very sweet mouth, very well integrated alcohol, aromas of plants and peat. Final more focused on bitter plants. Not very typical of Ardbeg and not too much my profile.
- A very good ardbeg, which is drunk alone, but not very complex and a poor value for money.
Peat, cold ashes, medicinal plants, lots of iodine. Low fat and sweet, the whole is not very greedy.
Very sweet, easy, oily, on ashes, medicinal plants, peat. The sherry is not very marked, it accompanies all with this very sweet, sweet character (milk chocolate, caramel).
Ashen, a little sherry and peat.
- Stunning Ardbeg,
perfectly balanced. And eminently quaffable without water, despite the cask
strength. Available for around 180 EUR.
It starts fairly
sweet with loads of earthy notes. I would describe the sweetness as almonds and
rhubarb. A bit of old leather shines through as well. After a few moments milk
chocolate kicks in. And brown sugar. Once past the sherry, the typical Ardbeg
shines through with loads of peat and a salty edge. Wet tar. Wonderful.
It is quite oily on
the palate. Almost creamy. Immediately sweet peat, loads of sea salt and ashes,
before the sherry takes over and makes it warm and sweet on vanilla, yellow
plums and rhubarb. Hints of grapefruit. Surprisingly sweet, but what a tasty
In the warm and long
finish, the fruit evolves towards the dried variety and is wrapped in a smoky
blanket. It dies, despite the sherry sweetness, a very salty death.
- gold color, exuberant nose but a little disgusting in the long run as sweet enough, on brown sugar and caramel, otherwise really very peaty, iodized, and well marked by the rubber side of Ardbeg. The mouth is in the same line, very easy to drink, a little vanilla, big peat and sweet sherry, quite thick. Good length. The whole lack a little balance and finesse, the first sip is excellent but we get tired quickly.
