  1. Gaija scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Seems very young and naked, maybe I expected something a little more subtle and mature at 15 yo. Anyway, this is a very powerful peaty blade with a lot of wet sand, ashes and wasabi, and a weird touch of Werther's Original that I find a little incoherent. Very long finish, of course.

  3. peathead scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This is a really intense, powerfull Ardbeg.  I find it much too strong for me when I drink it neat even though I`m used to drinking cask strength whiskies. I add about a tea spoon of water to my dram but then it becomes just wonderfull and much more balanced with lots of earthy peat and wet moss, sea weed, brine etc. in the nose as well as on the palate.
