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, Managerâ€™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 smokeâ€¦
This is just â€˜Ardbegâ€™.
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 tonesâ€¦ Gets very
medicinalâ€¦ and a long finish
on chlorophyll, peat, liquorice and
a pinch of saltâ€¦ Yes, just fab
and, again, dangerously drinkable.
