Ardbeg 1974 Bottling Note

These mid-1990s Connoisseur's Choice bottlings of mid-70s Ardbegs have become legendary, and this is a truly stunning example we don't expect to hang around very long...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The peat is dominant and insistent, but there's the typical buttery honey sweetness that integrates well with the heavy peat nose; tarmac, dried herbs, espresso.

Palate: Salty butter and marmalade, creosote and lapsang souchong.

Finish: Oaky with notes of herbs and toffee.

Overall: A phenomenal Ardbeg from what some argue was the distillery's finest hour.

    User Reviews of the Ardbeg 1974 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail)

    The one by which I measure all others

    This particular single malt whiskey is my absolute favourite. I enjoy the peaty, smoky whiskeys, but this seaweedy, iodine-and-phenol-infused Ardbeg is the smoothest, most mellow one I have tasted. Its finish is the best (in smoothness, character and length) of what I have tried. It trumps the normally available Islay single malts by quite a distance.
