“Sublime nose! Greatly well aged Ardbeg whisky with all its peat muscle still there.”
This Ardbeg single malt whisky was matured for 17 years in a bourbon cask before bottling in 2011 at Bruichladdich.
This dram has a white wine-like color.
Nose (93): more than average. peat, honey, earth, citrus, vanilla, iodine, coffee. Sublime! Most delicate peat punch with the sweetest honey.
Palate (92): smooth, powerful, oily. peat, honey, citrus, floral, earth, cocoa.
Finish (90): longer than average. peat, honey, spices, wood.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Ardbeg 17 Year Old 1994 - Mission (Murray McDavid) with 92 points over 100.
