I found this on google, I'm not sure if it's the same bottling;
Ardbeg 1978 Distillery bottling, 43% a.b.v.
Mellow nose. Chocolate, marshmallow, and nut notes combine to strongly remind of "rocky road" ice cream. Rich, with a leafy, peaty, earthy layer floating above. The dusty, mellow palate shows peat, chocolate, marshmallow. Wet smoke and burnt peanut in the finish.

Let me know,

Thanks for your reply. All four of them.

I'd also like to know what other users of this forum think of it.

If you have something to say you might as well be heard.
