  1. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Whiskyfun

    Colour: gold. Nose: very expressive, to say the least. Starts extremely resinous, with lots of camphor, eucalyptus, bandages, getting then more and more medicinal. Then we have the marzipan, almond milk, and then all the sea 'stuff': fisherman's nest, shells, oysters... All that is finally rather delicate, not brutal at all. Really brilliant! Keeps developing on orgeat syrup, marzipan, whiffs of turpentine and even tar, dried seaweed... Natural mastic? Heck, let's say it: 'wow!' Mouth: an extraordinary attack, powerful, extremely thick and coating, on peat, rubber and bitter oranges. Hugely concentrated! Lots of mastic sweets, beeswax, cough syrup, quite some herbs (mostly chervil but also a little dill), getting then quite lemony but always resinous... So playful after all these years! The finish is long, waxy, almondy and peaty, with just traces of wine. A perfect match! 95 points.

    [April, 2000]  I had another 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 body than the dark oloroso edition but a less intense nose.

    It was an extraordinary decadent line-up this evening:

    [October, 1999]  I had this dram during a tasting at Rolandsbogen. 

    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 dram 95+.  Unfortunately no additional notes were taken (except one word: "Wow!").

    Ardbeg 28y 1967/1995, 53.7%, Signatory, cask 575, Pale Oloroso - Islay - 95/100
    Nose the glass. Blessed be the Lord! And Luk. Peat, but not the seventies Ardbeg peat, let alone more recent, sharper peat type Airigh Nam Beist. This peat is sublime soft, fruity and sweet. The most delicious, soft sherry through it. Light sea associations (salt, seaweed ...) and some herbs too. Which? Who cares! And probably I can get a lot more out of my nose, because he is so complex, but I do not feel like it now. Wonderful just. And the taste? Yes, that also justifies the score. Powerful, mouth filling, with the fruity peat, salt, liquorice, wax, little tar ... whatever. Nice intertwining to quote an illustrious club member. No, beautiful is a term that detracts from this Ardbeg. Formidable, sublime, breath-taking, mouth-watering, that is the terminology that applies here. Seedy, everlasting finish. Man, this is delicious whisky! http://onversneden.com/2009/06/11/fulldram-supertasting/

  6. checkpointuk scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2012/mehr-als-nur-ein-vergnuegen-drei-ardbeg-legenden-im-direktvergleich-cask-2782-575-und-2390-25409/ Color: pale gold
    Nose: Complex old nose! Starts with glue, resin and gum, perfumed honey, herbs and almonds in rum. Slight salt and delicate maritime notes. Smoke and peat-free!
    Taste: Heavy and powerful. The aromas of the Oloroso barrel are now being highlighted. The sweeties get stronger, but also the sticky gum notes. In addition there are bitter orange and herbs, which are heavily salty; Accents of oak and lemon.
    Finish: Very long, salty and again gum. The waxy wood flavors become stronger; the syrupy sweetie remains until the end. Only now does smoke and some peat come to the fore and make the finish quite dry.
    Note: The slightly too strong rubber influence prevents a higher score for my taste!
    92 points (nose: 91 / taste: 93 / finish: 92)

  7. Dede scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    A profile so special! This is the first time I have tasted such a whisky. Still, it's excellent!
    • Nose
      Unique. I never smelled a nose like this. Extremely camphorated, resinous, with notes of universal glue, hydrocarbons and perhaps some rubber. Sawdust too, as well as herbal liqueur and verbena. Behind are softer fragrances, sweet almond oil and vanilla, as well as some marine hints.
    • Taste
      What a freshness! The particular profile of the nose is found in the mouth. Hard to describe, but there are notes of camphor, resin, eucalyptus, candy lemon balm, aromatic herbs. The texture is very fatty and the alcohol a little more present than in the Cadenhead despite a lower degree. This Ardbeg is medicinal indeed, but it looks more towards aromatherapy than to the classic syrup for cough.
    • Finish
      A little shorter than that of the Cadenhead, it is extended on pine resin, aromatic herbs and verbena. She dries her mouth slightly.
