In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90 points only. My notes state it has unusual shy peaty aromas (for a 1974 Ardbeg) but a very complex and rounded profile. It improves significantly with water added. This low rating might be caused by the extraordinary line-up this evening (see below), in other tastings I scored this whisky significantly better (up to 93 points)...
It was an extraordinary decadent line-up this evening:
and as a bonus dram "one for the road"
