Color
Treacle
Nose

ein altes vergessenes Sherryfass
dunkles Spanien
bitter süß
weiche Heide, Salzwiesen, kalter Holzrauch
nasser Nordseeschlick und trockener Torf
dunkles nussiges Eichenholz
spritzig süße Zitronen
die Nase erzählt von Momenten aus alten Geschichten
dunkel und vergessen

Sherry alt, herb & dunkles nussiges Holz
Schuhwachs
mit einem Schuss altem Ardbeg veredelt
der Sherry ist toll, aber sehr dominant

Taste

ein erster schneller Schluck
sagt dunkler Asphalt

Rosinen, heißer Asphalt, Eiche, Nuss, viel Leder
Zitrone, eine kleine florale Note, eine kühle Kampfer Note


es ist kalt in dem alten Raum voller staubiger Möbel
Deine Hände gleiten über das glatte Leder der Sessel
im Sommer bist Du auf der kleinen Straße zum Dorf gelaufen
der Asphalt war so heiß
dass Du ihn riechen konntest
Deine Schuhe hättest Du nicht ausziehen sollen
Du kannst den Schmerz noch fühlen
heißer glühender Asphalt
und jetzt dieses kühle alte Leder an deinen Händen
Du lächelst
was für ein Gegensatz

Du öffnest den alten Eichenschrank
es knarrt als wollte die Eiche nach so vielen Jahren noch etwas sagen
trocken und staubig ist ihr Holz geworden

dunkler Sherry aus Spanien
bitter, süß, dunkel und geheimnisvoll
als wäre er mit der alten Eiche verwachsen
Dein Mund wird feucht
reife Orangen, Möbelpolitur, dunkle Schokolade, Staub 

an Deinem Gaumen haftet nur noch trocken und staubig die Eiche
Du musst warten lernen
warten auf den vollkommenen Genuss

die Eiche an Deinem Gaumen löst sich in Deinem Speichel auf
sie wird immer süßer
Orangen, Marzipan, Bittermandel
kühlender Kampher und Minze, heiße Asche

Du willst noch einen Schluck
kalt und glatt fängt es an
dann kommt der heiße Asphalt....
- na Du weißt schon -
Finish

lang
Bittermandel und Eiche
Speichelfluss und Trockenheit
Du musst mit ihm spielen
dann gibt er seine Aromen frei
kräftige Fassaromen
bittersüße Frucht

Comments

ein ganz eigener Ardbeg

der schwer dominiert wird vom Oloroso Sherry
ein Grund warum er eine UA Abfüllung wurde?
der starke Holzeinfluss könnte für manche zu heftig sein
normal alles Punktabzüge
aber er hat die Kurve bekommen und ist ein tolles Unikat geworden
extravagant

94 von 100 Punkten
Yes, I'm in a wooden heaven 




unforgettable whisky takes you on a journey, gives you new dreams, awakens your forgotten dreams, moves you out of time.....

Whiskyfun


Colour: deep amber - brownish. Nose: the sherry is much more demonstrative now, the whole starting on notes of toasted bread and balsamic vinegar, prunes and chestnut honey... It gets much more complex after a while, with notes of hot breadcrumb, cooked red cabbage... And then something quite resinous, fir honeydew, camphor, embrocations... It's very smoky at that... And then we have all sorts of herbal teas (rosehip, hawthorn), then very old Bourgogne red wine, then parsley, then empty barrels (clean ones of course), then hints of lovage, then..., then... then... This nose is totally stunning. Mouth: extremely playful and dry at the same time, with lots of oloroso but also a full basket of citrus fruits again (oranges, lemons, grapefruits...) as well as lots of medicinal notes: cough syrup, iodine... also liquorice sweets, tar liqueur, bitter chocolate... Again just fabulous. The finish is very long again, very satisfying, rich, bold, peaty and chocolaty... Near perfection, even if it's a rather extreme whisky. 96 points.

[December, 2005]  I emptied bottle no. 161 together with friends around christmas time that I bought for 255 Euros (499 Deutschmark) in December, 2001.

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 95+.  Pls. see my other notes below for details.

Couleur ambre foncé, nez très très marqué par le sherry, boisé, vieux meuble, balsamique, girofle, café, cuir, prunes et autres fruits cuits, léger voile de fumée, boîte à cigare, amandes. Bouche puissante, sèche, boisée, tannique, un peu amère même, un peu plus de fumée (cendre froide), toujours très café, cuir, fruits cuits, clou de girofle. Finale très longue, boisée, enfin un peu d'iode, épices (girofle, cannelle). Un Ardbeg peu marqué par la tourbe, mais vraiment très sherry, un peu trop boisé, même pour moi qui apprécie généralement ce genre de profil. Je préfère le 1967 Cask 1138, plus fondu et plus fin.

[March, 2001]  I had another dram during an Islay charity tasting at Rheinhotel Dreesen. 

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 95+.  Unfortunately no detailed notes were taken.

But I noted the results of the charity auction:
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/11079/bowmore-1976-ud = 610 DM (305 Euros)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/16877/bruichladdich-15-year-old = 270 DM (135 Euros)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/11192/caol-ila-1966-gm = 540 DM (270 Euros)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/8341/bowmore-1964-black = 2900 DM (1450 Euros, no one placed a bid at the mininum price of 2900 DM during the first auction round - in a second round with a reduced starting bid it was hammered at this price)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/6201/killyloch-1972-sv = 3500 DM (1750 Euros, no one placed a bid at the mininum price of 2900 DM during the first auction round - in a second round with a reduced starting bid it was hammered at this price)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/7342/ardbeg-1967-sv = 560 DM (280 Euros)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/20157/macallan-195859 = 560 DM (280 Euros)
- a Macallan distilled 17.10.1988, bottled 22.12.2000 port finish for 400 days in a port quarter cask by Werner Hertwig, Berlin, bottle no. 3 of 30 = 140 DM (70 Euros)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/23694/glen-grant-1965-sv = 670 DM (335 Euros)
- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/8203/laphroaig-1966-sv = 710 DM (355 Euros)

The final result of this auction (10.650 Deutschmark or 5.325 Euros) was donated to charity projects on Islay.

[November, 2000]  I had another dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting at Kyrburg. 

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 95.  My notes state an extremely complex sherry profile both in the nose and on the palate.  The arrival in the mouth is very enjoyable.  Good finish (hey, what's this???).

[April, 2000]  I had my first dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting at Rolandsbogen.  The price of this fine tasting was as low as 180 Deutschmark (90 Euros) plus 70 Deutschmark for an excellent four-course dinner. 

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 95+ points.  My notes state it has a more intense nose than the pale oloroso edition but a less intense body.

It was an extraordinary decadent line-up this evening:
