    Bääh ... .furchtbar. I just will not get warm with whisky made from sweet wine barrels, whether it's finish or continuous storage. If you liked the Bruichladdich Sauternes or Ballechin Sauternes or the Glendronach or or or you will love this Ardmore here. This whisky is probably quite great, because it combines with this greasy, sticky sweetness and vanilla everything that I have tasted so far at the Sauternesfinishes so far and what many friends of mine so far found great. So for a lot of them that's definitely a really great, multi-faceted, intense, aromatic whisky, but personally I think that just like all other sweet wine finishes, it's just awful. Scotch Universe has always brought me great bottlings, so I put a little hope in them to overcome my sweet wine phobia. Too bad
    • Nose
      I am directly opposed to a sweetness, which I associate with peaches and apricots, which are already slightly over the point and also a clear vanilla note can not be denied. Almost timid, the Ardmore-typical light smoke and accompanied by fresh garden soil. More time in the glass shifts the smell rather towards smoke / earth, but the sweetness is constantly present.
    • Taste
      Liquid, smoky, extra-sweet cotton candy rolls over the tongue in cask strength. Everything is very soft, very intense, very sweet, very vanilla. The fermented peaches are strongly present, the smoke is clearly recognizable, but basically elegantly integrated.
    • Finish
      Long, peaty, sticky sweet

    The highland character and the delicate but present smoke reveal the Ardmore
    • Nose
      strong vanilla, subtle fruity notes of wine (apricots, a few raspberries), light mineral notes, mossy and herbaceous smoke, which adds complexity to the whole. Pretty harmonious for the young age
    • Taste
      Very cute. Sweet, soft and mild, the smoke is no exception. Extremely pleasantly smoky. The wine is more present than in the nose, subtly dark and richly sweet with ripe nectarines
    • Finish
      ashen, with tart citrus notes
