  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    a wonderful and smooth nose with harmonious notes
    which are found in the mouth and on the finish
    a magnificent Ardbeg
    with elegance and fire
    and a long pleasant finish94 out of 100 points
    yes! I'm in heaven
    • Nose
      have you ever swum in the North Sea when it was raining
      the salty water is gray-brown and quiet and it feels warm
      back on the beach, all over your body smells of salt and silt
      from harbor blowing a smoke fire
      at the quay you smell the wet old planks of the fishing boats
      the rain has stopped

      everywhere are gray puddles of sea water and rain
      a wet strand of hair falls into your face
      You feel the salt on your lips
      the fish still hangs over the ton in smoke
      you have to wait
      a fisherman gives you a bottle
      you raise it to your salty lips
      old nutty sherry flowing on your tongue
      lemons and cloves exude an intense smell out of the smoke
      you swallow ...
    • Taste
      smooth and cool
      salt

      lemon
      dark chocolate
      a hint of bitter almond
      salt & peat
      malt is slowly getting sweeter
      chocolate
      long malty sweetness with sea
    • Finish
      long
      salt & malt sweetness

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    a very nice calm nose with harmonious notes
    which can be found again in mouth and finish
    a beautiful Ardbeg
    with elegance and fire
    and a long pleasant finish

    yes! I'm in heaven
    • Nose
      Have you ever swam alone in the rain in the North Sea?
      The salty water is gray-brown and calm and it seems warm to you
      Back on the beach your whole body smells of salt and silt
      from the harbor blows a smoker
      at the quay you can smell the damp old ship planks of the fishing boat
      the rain has stopped
      gray puddles are half seawater, half rain everywhere
      a wet strand of hair falls in your face
      You feel the salt on your lips
      the fish still hangs over the barrel in the smoke
      you have to wait
      a fisherman hands you a bottle
      you put them to your salty lips and feel old nutty sherry
      Lemons and cloves come to the fish
      in the smoke they exude your intense smell
      You swallow ...
    • Taste
      smooth and cool,
      salt
      nut
      Smoke fire, warm ashes
      Fish, lemons, dark chocolate
      a touch of bitter almond
      Salt & peat
      Malt, which is getting sweeter
      chocolate
      long malt sweet with sea
    • Finish
      long
      Salt and malt sweetness
      Bitter chocolate with almonds
      sweet tobacco
