Ardbeg 17 Year Old Reviews

Great Islay Malt

Found a bottle about 6 years ago tucked away in a small wine shop near Bordeaux, (they had a few malts as well as wine) priced at 100 Euro, about £80, Ah could not believe my luck and bought it. One of the best Islay malts ever.

Smoooooth so much better than the 10 year old

I had a bottle in the nineties bought from the Army and Navy Victoria St London very smooth. Went back to get another a few months later and they were all gone. I wish I had hunted a few bottles down while they were still affordable and most importantly available. This was my first dabble into aged single malts, I may be remembering the taste with a rose tinted pallet. However it made such an impression I have between 20 to 30 bottles in my dedicated whisky cabinet. All open I may add. I recently tried a Liechtenstein single malt whisky finished in a Laphroaig cask and wow.

Awesome Islay Art - perfection!

One of my all time favourites, complex so well balanced and eminently drinkable - We mourn it’s loss! Still have a miniature but can’t bear to let it go!

Best scotch ever!

One of the two best Scotches of all time! Complex, smooth, and fantastic!

Best Islay scotch and possibly scotch ever!

Probably the single best single malt scotch that I have ever had and that is going some. Delicate, complex, smooth, nuanced, and literally spectacular!!!

Favorite Islay malt

Impossible to say what might be your favorite malt, as there is too much difference between the regions. When I was in the UK and for several years after, this was reasonably available and affordable. It was always in my cabinet and if pressed I would have to say it was my favorite Islay malt. Definitely out of my reach at today's prices, but as others have noted if I'd known I would have stocked cases of it.

Waste of money

A friend opened a bottle and we drank a dram. Nice but overpriced and a wee bit overrated.

The Best

The best bottle of whisky that I have ever savoured.
Enough said.

Christmas pudding

Fantastic flavour on this great whisky, which does not have the peaty tones of the whiskies of Islay. Unfortunately now retailing at £350 a bottle, but well worth every penny if you have that sort of cash spare.

Simply the Best ...

... Better than all the rest! This is most definitely the best single malt I have ever been proud to have in my collection. My bottle is sadly no more. Asking prices are now ten times what I originally paid.

The good old days

Back in the "good old days", when this was still being produced, it was a regular part of my whisky cabinet and my favorite Islay malt. Now alas it is well beyond affordable if it can be found at all. If I could time travel I'd buy a few cases.

A nice unforeseen gift

My father in law was asked to help a woman in his church clear out her liquor stock. He sent me a picture of the thanksgiving size table full of liquor. In the back of the picture I noticed a bottle of Ardbeg, knowing my Father-in-Law was not as fond of Islay scotch as he is of others, I asked if I could have it. A few days later in a box labeled "olive oil" a box of Ardbeg 17 arrived. I had no previous knowledge of this heavenly liquid and proceeded to open it. After a small taste I was pleasantly surprised at my good fortune. Some days later I, again after drinking a healthy sample of A17, decided to look it up. Although I wouldn't pay $726 for a bottle, I certainly appreciate the pricing. If I commonly spent that amount on a whiskey, this would be the one I spent it on.

The Gentle Ardbeg for a Birthday.

I was lucky enough to be bought a bottle of this by my wife on my Birthday. It was one of the few Ardbegs I hadn't tried before. What a treat it was. More rounded and dare I say gentler than other Ardbegs it was mellow, mature and refined. A truly special malt from a truly special distillery from a truly special person. What more can you want?

One of my favorites

Tried to buy all the bottles i could in 2005-6. I should have ordered a couple of cases. Very unique, essence can be noticed into the next day with only a minimal amount of consumption,(3-4 shots) very strange. I think the only action I have left is to go to Scotland.

Worth the money

I recently found a bottle for £250, in fact I found two. so one is for keeps and one is now open. the whisky is truly immense

I remember when.....

... this was 30 quid in Tescos, beutiful nonetheless, easily my favourite Islay Whisky,georgeous.

A need to understand history...

It's due to the history of the distillery, it was closed from 1991 to 1997 when it was bought by Glenmorangie, so whiskey distilled in that year is currently only 16 years old. I had the joy of having a bottle of this back around 2003-4 and it is a beautiful dram. Would I buy a bottle for this much? That is the real question.

Too pricey?

Ardbeg can't sort it out!! Its supply and demand. Van Gogh can't sort out the value given to a given Sunflowers painting.

9th September 2013

Its good.

But not THAT good!

500 quid for a 17 year old?! Ardbeg, sort it out!
