Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1967 SV

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.88 points

  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    a very own Ardbeg which is heavily dominated by Oloroso sherry a reason why he was bottling a UA? the heavy wood impact could be too intense for some normally all point deductions but he got the turn and became a great one-of-a-kind extravagant
    94 out of 100 points Yes, I'm in a wooden heaven
    • Nose
      an old forgotten sherry barrel
      dark Spain
      bitter sweet
      soft heath, salt marshes, cold wood smoke
      wet North Sea silt and dry peat
      dark nutty oak wood
      sparkling sweet lemons
      the nose tells of moments from old stories
      dark and forgotten
      Sherry old, tart & dark nutty wood
      Shoe wax
      refined with a dash of old Ardbeg
      The sherry is great, but very dominant
    • Taste
      a first quick sip
      says dark asphalt

      Raisins, hot asphalt, oak, nut, lots of leather
      Lemon, a small floral note, a cool camphor note
      It's cold in the old room full of dusty furniture
      Your hands glide over the smooth leather of the chair
      In summer you walked on the small road to the village
      the asphalt was so hot
      that you could smell him
      You should not have taken off your shoes
      You can still feel the pain
      hot glowing asphalt
      and now this cool old leather on your hands
      You're smiling
      what a contrast

      You open the old oak cabinet
      it creaks as if the oak wanted to say something after so many years
      their wood has become dry and dusty
      dark Sherry from Spain
      bitter, sweet, dark and mysterious
      as if it had grown together with the old oak Your mouth is getting wet
      ripe oranges, furniture polish, dark chocolate, dust
      The oak only remains dry and dusty on your palate You have to learn to wait
      wait for the perfect enjoyment

      the oak on your palate dissolves in your saliva
      she is getting sweeter
      Oranges, marzipan, bitter almond
      cooling camphor and mint, hot ashes

      You want another sip
      cold and smooth it starts
      then comes the hot asphalt ....
      - you know -
    • Finish
      long
      Bitter almond and oak
      Salivation and dryness
      You have to play with him
      then he releases his aromas
      strong barrel flavors
      bittersweet fruit

    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.

  5. hs305 scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    [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. 

  6. tomy63 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Dark amber color, nose very much marked by sherry, woody, old furniture, balsamic, clove, coffee, leather, plums and other cooked fruits, light veil of smoke, cigar box, almonds. Mouth powerful, dry, woody, tannic, a little bitter even, a little more smoke (cold ash), always very coffee, leather, cooked fruit, clove. Final very long, woody, finally a little iodine, spices (cloves, cinnamon). An Ardbeg little marked by peat, but really very sherry, a little too woody, even for me who generally appreciate this kind of profile. I prefer the 1967 Cask 1138, more melted and finer.

    - https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/6201/killyloch-1972-sv = 3500 DM

  8. hs305 scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    [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???).

  9. hs305 scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    [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:
