  1. tebond968 scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    Ardbeg 1974 'Provenance', 55%, OB March 29, 2000 for Asia & US, third release, bottle no 5060, 75 cl
    Pfiew, what smells this heavenly! Sweet peat smoke, old waxed leather, oak furniture, light silty, mature oak, soft herbs such as liquorice, ginger and cinnamon, freshly baked croissants, honey, hot apple pie (or is it apricot pie? No, it is both), lapsang souchong tea , a little bit of iodine ... wow! I know that an enumeration of associations does not say much, it only shows that this whisky has a complex nose. But you must smell this, this is so good, beautifully woven, nothing sharp, and it keeps on evolving. Smells come, stimulate your senses, go away again and re-emerge. So heavenly. The taste is certainly as complex and equally good. Well, 'good' is a slight understatement here. Sweet peat, salty, light medicinality, beeswax, olive oil (first pressing - yeah right), soft caramel, apples, mandarin, pepper, ginger, milk chocolate and cake. Not that all that is, but I do not want to dig further, but to enjoy further. The whole is very oily, slightly greasy. Very long aftertaste, on the most sublime peat, salt, herbs and fruit. Ardbeg at its absolute top and yet beautiful two points more than the 'Europe'. 96/100 http://onversneden.com/2013/11/09/ardbeg-provenance-for-asia/
