  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Found this version well hidden during a whisky festival in Holland! (officially French Market)

    Nose: delicate smoke, with a lovely coastal saltiness, later some vanilla/toffee sweetness combined with some lovely estery notes.

    Palate:  a burst of peatsmoke with a salty, drying, sweet, some what bitter.

    Finish: very smokey, flavorish, drying, typical, Ardbeg style

  3. ALouis scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Color: Gold
    Nose : Superb nose expressive and elegant combining all the elements of a good islay: A fine peat and chiseled on antiseptic and hospital nicely mixed with citrus, lemon and grapefruit. It then evolves on more marine notes of seaweed, oyster and coaltar.
    With aeration the nose becomes more mineral and lemony. Palate : The palate is dull, complex and easy drinkable at the same time.The aromas of the nose are all there but everything is superbly melted, you mix carefully peat, more on the tar this time, lemon, seaweed, oyster, coaltar and beautiful mineral notes and you get this divine nectar. Endless finale on peat, lemon and wet stone. 32 years of cask and not a trace of wood, a typical Ardbeg of this vintage.

  4. magic_slim scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Pure old Ardbeg at its best.
    • Nose
      Powerful and fresh despite of its age. Very delicate peat with plenty of grapefruit flavor. Smoked fish and sea spray complete an extraordinary wonderful nose.
    • Taste
      Powerful and heavily peated. Dry with an earthy humus component and lots of smoke. There is a slightly bitter grapefruit component. Then there are camphor and some spicy chili notes. Very tasty.
    • Finish
      Long, dry and peaty without any failure.
