  1. bokhanov scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Thick color, thick flavor, thick taste. It's not very simple. It is better to try.

    Ardbeg
    1973/2004 (49.5%, OB, Manager’s
    Choice for Italy, cask #1146)
    Colour: gold. Nose: much more classically
    Ardbeg, with lots of tar, peat smoke,
    liquorice, wet hay and wet dog plus
    a little eucalyptus and camphor as
    well as lemon juice and fresh almonds.
    Very bold and sort of electric. Huge
    notes of new tyres, coal smoke…
    This is just ‘Ardbeg’.
    Fab stuff. Mouth: a superb attack
    again, on espresso coffee, chestnut
    honey and of course lots of peat.
    Peated malt (grains), salted liquorice,
    hints of cloves and nutmeg plus some
    great oaky tones… Gets very
    medicinal… and a long finish
    on chlorophyll, peat, liquorice and
    a pinch of salt… Yes, just fab
    and, again, dangerously drinkable.
    95 points.
