[November, 2000] I had this dram during an Ardbeg rarities tasting at Kyrburg.
In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
- 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 87,5. My notes state a rich and peaty profile with some sherry flavours. There is almost no finish at all. With water it gets more gentle and the finish is a little longer (but still rather short).
This dram was distilled in 1980/81 and bottled in 1998.
