Ardbeg 1978 Bottling Note

A rather rare release from Ardbeg, this 1978 vintage represents single malt from the prodigious Ileach distillery at its most balanced and poised. Superb.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Full, slightly herbal. Notes of brine and peat smoke, espresso beans, fresh lime and cedar wood. Vanilla spice and a little toasty oak.

Palate Beautifully balanced herbal notes. Coffee beans. Cut hay, full-bodied. Woody.

Finish Long, becomes very spicy and oaked.

Reviews for Ardbeg 1978
The absolute best from Ardbeg
Superb nose and smooth finish. Not too overwhelming on the palate. Definitely not for beginners.

Somewhere between the nose and the palate, I journeyed to the peat fields of Campbeltown in the early 1800s throttling the nectar of Springbank. A local sheep provided deeply profound theosophical arguments and just as I achieved perfect synchronicity with the universe and an enlightened state of Kairos, all faded to the piquant finish of pungent rotting leaves smoking over a dull, dank fire, burning my soul with the aftertaste of overcooked Mutton. And the last Ferry to Islay had already departed. Oh dear.
