Ardbeg 1975 / 29 Year Old / Douglas Laing
70cl / 47.3%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
An epic Ardbeg, this is one of Douglas Laing's earlier Platinum series releases from 2004. Some old Ardbegs are sweet and fruity, but here the emphasis is very much on the smoke with the fruit and sweetness in the background. A belter.

Bottler's Tasting Notes
Cooked apple-skin hits the nose, closely followed by a menthol smokiness.
The smoke on the nose is thick and heavy leading on to the palate, which is astonishingly phenolic, peppery and smoky.
The finish lingers for an age with tobacco smoke and rich fruitiness
