Ardbeg 1974-1996 | Connoisseurs Choice
Islay Single Malt Scotch whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 40%
Ardbeg 1974 bottled in 1996 by Gordon & MacPhail as part of their Connoisseur's Choice range. One of several bottlings of Ardbeg from G&M in the 1990s that helped keep the distillery alive in the minds (and palates) of early single malt enthusiasts...
This is a stunning dram, packed with huge, tarry peat notes, rich, smoky, oily and hugely phenolic, as big as whisky can possibly be at only 40%. A majestic old style of Islay whisky unique to this distillery that anyone serious about Islay whisky should try before all these wonderful bottles disappear for ever. Please note that the ROPP ring (retaining ring) is broken most of the way around but still partially intact.
