Ardbeg Ardcore

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @Engel
  • Rating: 70/100
  • Review: “Well …… what to say? Not impressed! Most strikingly a disappointment and certainly not meeting the bar that should be expected for Ardbeg. Typically a younger expression that lacks complexity, roundness and finish. The dark roasted malt brings some new flavors (mainly espresso) and spick kick, but that’s it. Not for buying (much too expensive), just for trying.”

Ardbeg Supernova 2010

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @Valtto
  • Rating: 95/100
  • Review: “I tasted this at VYS tasting. the theme of the tasting was to find the smokiest whisky from Islay. From all the bottlings I tasted (including Octomores 12.1, 12.2 and 12,3) this was the smokiest one, even though Octomore has higher ppm. Most delicious smoky whisky I have ever tasted.”

Gold Cock Peated

  • Review: “Single malt from the Czech Republic. The malt used for this whiskey is dried with three times as much peat as normal. Plus it was allowed to mature in lightly charred European oak barrels. the fragrance: salty, woody, smoky, and a sweet tropical hue. the taste is smoke, leather, orange peel, Pine tree”

Hibiki Japanese Harmony Master’s Select
