Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Earthy peat and warm leather with old roof slates and gentle medicinal touches.

    • Palate

      Fresh bandages and TCP followed by coffee lime peel, orange peel, spice and charcoal.

    • Finish

      Warming, with lime peel, slate and ash.

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Sweet earthy peat and warm leather to start. Mossy green notes develop along with a mineral dryness – old roof slates. Medicinal hints and traditional whisky warehouses sit behind that, with bung cloth, iodine and sea spray.

    • Palate

      Big medicinal hit to start, with fresh bandages joined by TCP. Ground coffee and sharp green leaves are joined by lime peel, orange peel and charcoal. Some spice develops, with soft nutmeg backed up by a cinnamon tingle.

    • Finish

      Warming finish, with lime peel, slate and ash.

  • Tasting Notes by Ed B

    • Nose

      Sweet ham and bananas, soft smoke with a hint of mintiness. Overall, a smoky caress rather than a punch.

    • Palate

      Ripe-fruit sweetness with a delicate carbonic kiss. Worryingly drinkable and approachable.

    • Finish

      Not overly complicated, just a smothering dry finish. Lingers on the tongue.

    Anonymous,

    One of my all time favorite scotches! Smells like band aids, tastes like vanilla candy with a long smoky finish that’s to die for. I’m sad I didn’t buy a case of it. I like most of the Ardbegs, but this is in a class all alone.

    Kevin,

    Update. Half way down the bottle, so a reasonable amount of oxidation of the compounds. Has improved considerably over the initial bottle opening dram. Give this expression time. Flavours deepen with additional ullage in the bottle. Smoked ham comes through. Smokiness is stronger than initially in fresh new bottle dram. Fruits more pear, Apple, than dried fruits. Personally, not picking mch dried fruit myself and I suspect perhaps a Fino variation. Tangy lemon, green olive and grape more than dried fruit to my palate. Colour could come from allowing the flor to die. I detect chalkiness and salt which could come from Amontilado. Conclusion, well I have increased my rating. A very imaginative and curious Ardbeg. I could be wrong about casks but I don't think this is Oloroso or PX unless the finish period has been a couple of hours lol. Very nice Ardbeg and adds to the variety in their expressions. Imaginative finish IMO.

    BEF,

    I drank this against 9 other Ardbegs several other top Islays in a very unusual context in Odessa, where for reasons I can't go in to there was a genuine concern that I was about to be in very serious trouble and possible physical danger. Stood out as the best of an excellent bunch and is certainly now my final supper whisky - if I ever find myself on death row this will definitely be my last round...

    Kevin,

    Thin coatline with small beads and legs run slowly reflecting low oil content and higher ABV. Colour slightly darker than 10 year old, suggesting a very short finish in a sherry cask, unless of course that was a Fino sherry and accompanying dryness which is present, but I suspect Oloroso. Nose - slighter smoke than usual, chocolate hit, ashy and some gunpowder,, slight dried fruits mainly raisin, slight hint of banana and pear reflecting isoamyl acetate. A licorice background. Slight inside of a teapot aroma. The feinty aromas are typical of the Kildaltons and not surprising given that 60% of the phenols are in the feints. Palate - salty, peat smoke is quite strong, chilli and pepper from 1st fill American Casks. A bit of a wolf in sheets clothing given the reduced Ardbeg smokiness in the nose. Finish - slightly smoke, slightly sweet, tannic, medium length Conclusion - is it worth the money? Not in comparison to other Ardbegs, but I have just opened the bottle and to be fair it will probably sharpen up considerably. I prefer the 10 year old over any of the other Ardbegs and Corryvreckan, Uigeadail and Dark Cove over this NAS. Still a nice enough peated whisky and more gentle than most others of the Kildalton strains.
