  1. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Best value whisky club. After I buy an expensive bottle I sometimes wonder why, it is almost never better than this whisky
    • Nose
      oiled kippers, mint and iodine, some green fruits but not overly unripe, some herbaceousness and freshness, a little tar and maybe fennel. More of the same with water
    • Taste
      Fresh woodsmoke, mint, pickled lemon brine, iodine. More tar, more sugar with water
    • Finish
      Oily and iodine and crystal sugar. Less oily more sweet with water. Sugar mints

  3. Dramned! scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    For me, the Ardbeg of the three neighboring South Coast Islays (Lagavulin and Laphroaig) is the most impressive! Nosing and Taste are very complex and leave plenty of room for new things! A very wonderful drop! And as the only one of the three not colored and not cool filtered!
    • Nose
      Smoke with a wonderfully sweet vanilla pod, to the nose blows a sea breeze with spicy salt and seaweed. Little fruit for me.
    • Taste
      Even more restrained fruity, intense tart spicy sweetness predominates, despite the high alcohol content pleasantly soft.
    • Finish
      As expected, long and smoky and with a very pleasant sweetness.
