  1. Saftkenner scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A nice powerful standard bottling. My bottle has now been open for four years and fortunately has not deteriorated since opening, as is the case with many young smoky bottlings (such as a bad tar aroma with the Laphroaig QuarterCask) but on the contrary has developed magnificently.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Powerful maritime smoke. Campfire, sea spray, damp wood, aged leather, tobacco, aniseed, vanilla, hints of orange, oak spice, lemon cake.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Full, oily, strong. Smoke, pepper, orange, vanilla, juicy dark chocolate cake, iodine, persipan.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium finish. What remains is a pleasant, quite elegant smoky note for Ardbeg, with vanilla, dried apricots and sweet persipan.

  4. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Great stuff, in the nose a little bit closed, in the mouth then a smoky taste explosion with a fantastic long finish, NAS towards NAS her, a super standard I'll definitely buy again
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla and caramel, with smoke, round and not too intrusive
    • Taste
      Here is the full broadside of sweet ash, charcoal, sweet-citrus-marinated meat grilled over direct fire, full, strong, thick and oily
    • Finish
      Long, light Ardbegsüße, oak, smoke, smoke, smoke and smoke.

    A wonderful Whisky of Ardbeg and my first of this distillery. Absolutely perfect! Smoky, sweet and complex in all facets.
    • Nose
      Blind tasting:

      Smoky. Sweet Candyshop. BBQ. Little bit medicine. Little bit Tabac and Vanilla. Lovely. Very interesting Nose.
    • Taste
      Smoky in Balance with sweetness and oak. Voluminous. Spicy with little bit china oil and goodswagon!
    • Finish
      Long lasting aroma of smoke with a little bit bitterness and sharpness.
