  1. Alex611 scored this whisky 97 points Expert Junior

    Nose: sweet vanilla, cream, a few meaty notes, biscuits, fudge and a creamy peatiness. Elegant and fresh.
    Taste: the peat is quite strong, then cream and some plum flavours, raisins, mango and dates. Delicious, vigorous and nice.
    Finish: the finish is long and very impressive, it keeps going on and on. Very fruity, creamy and with peat cover. Just superb!

  2. Davenport scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Vanilla, honey, cream, biscuit and a creamy peatiness. Elegant and complex.
    Taste:
    In the beginning, the peat is quite strong. Then come pineapples, dried apples, lemons, almond oil, some plums. Massive creamy properties, I really like this. Very elegant.
    Finish:
    The finish length is long and impressive, it remains creamy, clean and peaty.
    Ardbeg at its best!
