Whisky Reviews for Ardbeg 1973

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