A 1975 vintage single cask Ardbeg from Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. This was the first year of Ardbeg using large amounts of barley produced away from their maltings. Add in 27 years in a sherry cask and this is an intriguing and unusual expression of Ardbeg.

Ardbeg 1975 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Wow! Starts off with dried orange peel from the sherry cask, then seaweed and engine oil arrive, along with ozone and hot shells, and a refreshing herbal streak (sage). Rich, unctuous and intriguing.

    Palate: Superb balance – equal parts peat, fruit, oak and sherried notes. Lovely maritime note adds precision and freshness. This is a ridiculously complex whisky.

    Finish: Great balance, with the coastal elements and smoke shading it.
