  1. Ben Bruikman scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It is a solid whisky, and typical Iland whisky of class. You really have to love it, but if you like solid Iland whisky then this one is definitely worth it. The color is very white, almost white wine.
    • Nose
      85 85
      firm, smoky with notes of tar, fresh walnuts and very light notes of a cow shed and dried seaweed. With water you can smell mineral and organic notes of clay, oysters with oily notes and notes of green olives.
    • Taste
      88 88
      greasy, first aromas of lemon, smoky peat and green herbal tea. With water, notes of camphor and old cough syrup emerge, then sweeter aromas of ripe apples and barley sugar.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The aftertaste is long and typical Ardbeg, long, slightly sweet and less smoky at the end.

    For less than 100 eu., How to have fun at a lower cost!
    intense aromas, which last! distilled on new wood, to make even more explode the flavors! this dram can be shared with an endive and its apple wedge with Roquefort cheese!
    • Nose
      smoke, liquorice, back fire, then lemon and peat and spices!
    • Taste
      very peaty, liquorice, green herbs, lemon, pepper, clove, lemon a little confit, then the peat comes back "in an .officinal" way, medicinal!
      a bit of cocoa in return.
    • Finish
      long, intense, on the peat more dry, on the candied fruit, the pepper again
