    [May, 2013] Together with friends I emptied a bottle during a birthday party while cruising the river Rhine that I bought for 41 Euro in February, 2008.

    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 it 87,5. I took no notes.

    The drinking strength fits here super, it would not be more intense with more alcohol. It is easy to see that this is an Ardbeg. In combination with the rum, the basic sweetness that the Ardbeg naturally brings is a perfect match.
    • Nose
      a very interesting nose, full of exotic fruits, creamy, vanilla, sweet, molasses, very smoky in the beginning, medically, then the smoke flattens off a bit and leaves the fruit cargo free ride, the rum barrel has quite an influence, mango, light Banana, grated coconut, also has some acidity, the nose is screaming for a beach in the Caribbean
    • Taste
      oily, very sweet, creamy, the smoke is very present, at the latest here you know which distillery you are dealing with, there is a slightly sourish fruit, the rum is not hidden here, too, this sweetness is dry, dry and harsh becoming without losing the sweetness, also a grapefruit
    • Finish
      The smoke lingers for a very long time and brings with it an ashy dryness, over it lies yellow fruit that goes towards banana, but also sourish fruit like mango
