  1. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS note:

    There was a surprising earthy, almost smoky depth to this sample – we were puzzled but not displeased.

    The nose had singed lime, creosote and polished mahogany – but also
    honey, banana chips, apple, cinnamon and malt loaf. Water turned it to
    dark chocolate Florentines, toasted oak, hessian, ginger and polished
    shoes.

    The unreduced palate was huge and mouth-drawing – espresso, leather,
    tobacco, chilli and treacle toffee – but all tempered by plums,
    nectarines, fig rolls and a pleasant citrus and honey combination.

    The reduced palate – teasing and pleasing – rum and raisin fudge, black jacks, stewed apples, Jaffa cakes and an old pipe rack.
