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!

Ardbeg 1978 Reviews

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.
