Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1975 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.09 points

  1. mattlikescrunk scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Everyone always talks about "sea breeze, salt, sea" at Islay whiskys. Today's whiskys have it, but not in intensity like this bottling. The nose is incredibly 'austere' - that's how Serge Valentin would describe it. Here is still really sea and sea breeze in it - a dream. The 40% are sufficient to develop all the flavors.

  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The palate tells me this used to be a magnificent whisky before it was reduced to 40%. What's left is still quite wonderful but I think it would've easily sailed to over 90 pts with a little less H2O.
