  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 94 points Moderator

    Great on the nose, fantastic initial taste and then the vegetables and leather couch kicks in - still OK but less points with me - all in all still a very good one
    • Nose
      Fruity, sticky, sweet, raisins, breeze of peat and smoke, little salty, nutty, woody, spices, hints of rubber - very good
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, cooked oranges, nutty, oak, woody notes, sweet, milk chocolate, dried fruits, but there is also a note like cooked vegetables and green fruits combined with an old leather couch
    • Finish
      Medium long and warm, rather sweet

    Finally he came in the glass! Thanks Winni !!
    • Nose
      The character of Islay-bottom-right is immediately present, after some life this is played extremely sweet, a beautiful balance of citrus-flavored smoke and raisin-heavy Sherry sweetness, maritime, no pungent ingredients, later tobacco, chocolate, ash
    • Taste
      Sweet red fruits, very creamy, then the Islay-down-right-character pushes over, beautiful flaming and heating smoke, syrup, burning dry wood
    • Finish
      Oak spice, the smoke and citrus sweetness remain sticky, then left behind especially the sherry sweetness on the palate

    Stunning older Ardbeg finished (my guess) in a sweet sherry cask (maybe PX). Amazing chocolate and the palate and the nose. Maybe a bit to sweet in the aftertaste. Very well done!

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10
    • Nose
      Sweet thick sherry, smoke, cherry caramel, fruity honey, nougat, Nutella, Mozart Kugeln (milk chocolate).
    • Taste
      Smoky sherry coffee chocolate with nougat. Great texture, fruity leather, fruits and chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long. Sweet smoky sherry, cedar wood nougat, sweet mocha.

    • Nose
      Sweet Sherry paired with strong peat - very complex and compact at the beginning. Campfire, smoke, hot cherries. With some time it opens and the sherry flavors are differentiated. Cherries, raspberries, fruit gums, essential oils / herbs (peppermint, eucalyptus), caramel, the peat is slightly more in the background. The longer he stands, the more fruity he becomes.
    • Taste
      What a start. Mouth watering. It's literally mouth watering. Insanely strong at the beginning, the more saliva comes to it, the softer and rounder it becomes. A nice, light, sweet sherry that was very well integrated and does not overpaint the character of the whisky but emphasizes and supports.

    Just wow. Well balanced smoke. An unbelieveable sweetness. Rounder than everything I've tasted

  8. gango4 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Sweet sherry, fruit, smoke, sea, everything there, beautifully balanced.
    • Nose
      When pouring equally clear sweet and smoke. Perfect balance. After a few minutes comes a sea breeze that blends in harmoniously. Powerful and yet soft. With a little warmth, the smoke becomes clearer, a little more after campfire, the sweetness retreats minimally.
    • Taste
      Strong, again a clear sweetness, fruity, a little less smoke than before in the nose, the earth comes back slightly stronger later.
    • Finish
      There remains a little ash. Light sweetness. Little salt.
