Ardbeg 24yo 1965 (54.4%, Cadenhead, dumpy white label)
Colour: white wine. Nose: oh, this is very different, starting on lots of metal, fishy smells and old Riesling as Olivier points out. Very complex, really a malt for wine freaks. A superb austerity! Fisherman’s nest, spring water, kippers, hints of camphor again, iodine (yes it’s medicinal), rubbed lemon skin… Another fab one, it seems! Mouth: a superb attack, resinous, camphory, with dried apples, lots of lemon juice, green pepper, quite some salt, candied oranges. Gets very spicy, with some chilli, white pepper, a little wasabi, thyme… A very long, waxy, camphory and peppery finish. Excellent, too bad the palate doesn’t quite fit the nose although are superb. 93 points.
