1974 Ardbeg Provenance Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere 5000)

SKU #1058707

One of the most sought-after whiskies of all time. The ultimate bottle of Ardbeg for any collector of serious single malt. Serge from Whiskyfun.com gushes, " A well known Ardbeg, always a huge pleasure to have another go at it. Colour: full gold. Nose: starts rather simply, on full smoke, peat and cooked apple. As often with these stunning Ardbegs, it needs a few seconds before it bursts into your nose. And here it goes: musk, ginger, sea air, iodine, wax polish, cooked apricots, old turpentine, old furniture, bandages, camphor. Need I say more? Even better than last time - this bottle was opened more than one year ago and was 2/3 empty. Incredible, it became even more complex! But wait, maybe the palate is a bit tired. Mouth: now it’s very quick in action! Smoky, peppery, gingery, very creamy and even sort of silky. Lots of Lapsang Souchong tea, grapefruit juice, dark chocolate. Also something a little ‘burnt’ (burnt cake, BBQ herbs, curry powder)...extremely bold and balanced at the same time, with kind of a roughness that’s most enjoyable. The finish is ‘long like a day without bread’, peppery and spicy, with also some clove and quite some tannins. In short, still a total winner and a landmark bottling. 95 points."
