This is a 27 year Ardbeg expression that was distilled in 1973 and bottled in 2000 at 50% ABV.
Nose: Very phenolic with rubber tires, decaying leaves, tangerine, and sweet barbeque.
Palate: Strong envelope glue notes with plenty of peat mixed among heavy ashes, lemon juice, and seawater.
Finish: Vanilla, sugary, with the peat and ashes lingering for awhile.
Value for the money: These will run you close to $900 or so based on recent auction results (including fees, shipping, etc). I’d pass at that amount and maybe shoot for a 1972 OMC Ardbeg 28 instead if you’re after old Ardbegs.
